Compensation Discussion and Analysis (CD&A)

What is Compensation Discussion and Analysis (CD&A)?

Compensation Discussion and Analysis (CD&A) is a proxy statement component that covers the discussion of compensation philosophy, for example, pay-for-performance, performance metrics, and performance vesting equity. The CD&A shows an overview of the year‘s performance and compensation performance targets, and key compensation decisions made in the past year (i.e., salary changes, incentive plan changes). It also includes a compensation framework, including compensation policies/process and risk considerations, employment agreements, and compensation in comparison to peer group companies.
