2010 Clawback Policy Report
With the passing of the Dodd-Frank bill, clawbacks will soon become a mandatory feature of the CD&A. Equilar's new report examines the Fortune 100's current clawback policies, and their preparedness for the regulations to come:
  • Clawback policies are continuing to grow in prevalence. In 2006, 17.6% of Fortune 100 companies had a clawback policy. By 2010, 82.1% did. The financial crisis likely played a large role in this shift.
  • 81.3% of 2010¬ís clawback policies had a provision for clawbacks in the event of a financial restatement, 78% had provisions in the event of unethical behavior by an executive, and 63.7% had both.
  • Financial, insurance, and real estate companies were most likely to have clawbacks. 90.5% of F100 financial, insurance, and real estate companies had a clawback policy in 2010, compared to 82.4% in 2009 and 50% in 2008. This is partially attributable to TARP's requirement of clawbacks for senior executives.
