A look at executive compensation pay-levels and practices in recent IPOs in human capital intensive industries

The 2013 IPO Executive Compensation Study by consulting firm Connell & Partners, a division of Arthur J. Gallagher, provides insight into how recent IPOs in the high technology, biotechnology and alternative energy arenas (all human capital intensive industries) modify the structure of their executive compensation levels and practices as they transition to a publically traded company. The study is comprised of 46 companies that went public in the year 2011 and have since released proxy data for that year.  Jack Connell, Managing Director of Connell & Partners, looked at the compensation levels and practices in the year of their IPO and the previous year, to examine the changes.  The report examines the CEO, CFO and Head of Sales Positions as these were the three most prevalent positions listed.  It also looked at bonus plan, long-term incentive and severance and change-in-contol practices.
