Compass Group and Imperial Tobacco published their DRRs last week, giving their shareholders something to read over the festive period. Both companies are putting their policy reports up to a vote again at their AGMs on 5 February and 28 January respectively, due to amending their policies slightly. The notion that most policies will only be voted on every three years (as is allowed by the legislation) seems unlikely at the moment, as three of the four companies which have released their DRRs so far in the 2014/15 DRR season are putting their policy up to a vote again (as detailed in our blog post a couple of weeks ago, easyJet is too). Our new single source document has links to all the DRRs.
There was also an early Christmas present for remuneration committees and advisers last week, when the GC100 published an update to its guidance (more detail can be found in our blog post), something to digest along with the mince pies and roast turkey.
