Egan Associates 2015 Year in Review

Image1I would like to thank our clients for their support in the 2015 calendar year.  We are particularly delighted with the referrals that we receive from clients to their associates, either through common Board membership, industry affiliation or from other professional firms with whom we have worked in corporate transformation projects, mergers and acquisitions and IPOs.

2015 has been another very positive year for Egan Associates acting as the remuneration adviser to many organisations transitioning from private equity, an investment fund or private and government ownership, where we have been engaged in developing reward structures that better accommodate a listed environment or new owner while advising on strategies in rebalancing the three core elements of reward (fixed remuneration, annual incentive and long term incentive) in parallel with escrow provisions supportive of the expectations set out in a Prospectus and those of new shareholders.

Our engagement has been highly diverse, covering biotechnology, information technology, fintech, financial services, the consumer staple and consumer discretionary sectors, healthcare, industrial, utilities and energy, infrastructure, e-commerce, marketing, retail, business services, REITs and telecommunications in both Australia and New Zealand.

In the current year Egan Associates have been engaged as the primary remuneration adviser to companies preparing for an IPO with a market capitalisation from less than $100 million to in excess of $2 billion.

We also appreciate our continuing engagement by established clients in supporting their annual remuneration reviews, refreshing their annual or long term incentive plans and/or reviewing their general policy and market positioning strategies as they seek to both attract top talent and retain their core leadership.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for reading our Newsletter and offering constructive feedback. We hope that you have enjoyed our articles and reports, and that you will continue to do so in 2016.
