On November 26, 2013, the NASDAQ Stock Market (“Nasdaq”) filed a proposal to amend its listing standards regarding compensation committee independence (the “Proposal”). The modifications would provide Nasdaq listed companies with greater flexibility in determining compensation committee independence by eliminating the bright line prohibition on the receipt of compensatory fees by compensation committee members. Instead, boards of directors would only be required to “consider” the receipt of such fees when determining eligibility for compensation committee membership. Overall, the Proposal brings the Nasdaq standards in line with the current New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”) requirements.
