  • The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 has significantly changed the environment in which public companies operate. Part of this shifting landscape includes the SEC's intensified interest in reviewing public company disclosures in the executive compensation arena. The SEC's interest in this area has been evidenced by recent enforcement actions against The Walt Disney Company and General Electric Company, an investigation of Tyson Foods, Inc. and noteworthy comments by the Director of the SEC's Division of Corporation Finance.
