In almost all cases, a corporate transaction will bring about the need to address remuneration arrangements. In a merger or takeover, there is a need to bring together two separate reward structures and cultures. In a demerger, the requirement is to create a new reward philosophy and structure that will best serve the new independent entity. Whatever the nature of the change, a significant transaction is likely to herald a shift in a company's shape and focus, which may suggest changes to remuneration.
For companies considering an IPO, life as a public company offers both opportunities and challenges. Time invested early in the IPO process can reap significant benefits at the time of IPO and in the early years thereafter. Getting it right requires an in-depth understanding of the legal and governance aspects relating to remuneration on float.
