The premise of this session is that the impact of institutional investors and proxy advisory firms roles in the Mining sector are increasing with their ability to impact Say on Pay votes, equity plan renewals and individual director votes at AGMs.

The following issues will be covered as part of the session: Employment contract best practices including Change of Control definitions, Double/Single Triggers, termination provisions as well as Non-Competition and Non-Solicitation clauses. We will also discuss the use of Deferred Shared Units (DSUs), Restricted Share Units (RSUs) and Performance Share Units (PSUs) and their greater adoption in recent years to replace or make-up some of the Long-Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) value historically granted in Stock Options. Part of the discussion will also touch upon the merits of Omnibus Equity Plans which allow companies to grant any type of LTIP vehicle they would like and have consistent definitions under one plan document vs. using separate plan documents for Stock Options, RSUs, PSUs and DSUs.
