Say-on-Pay essentially provides public company shareholders with the ability to render an advisory vote on the compensation arrangements for their company's named executive officers. In addition, shareholders also can provide an advisory vote on the frequency that their company will conduct a Say-on-Pay vote.

The First 100 Days of Say-On-Pay Mark Many More Failed Votes and the Advent of Say-On-Golden Parachutes
With the end of April 2011, it has been one-hundred days since shareholders were able to render advisory votes on the executive compensation provided at their publicly-held companies in accordance with rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") in January 2011 ("Say-On-Pay"). These rules were promulgated under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the "Reform Act"). Our Say-On-Pay Site provides periodic blogs on Say-on-Pay developments, along with an overview of the applicable rules and requirements, and there are also updated Say-On-Pay voting results and statistics.
