What can large-cap company boards learn from small-cap company boards?

Seven out of ten US public companies have a market capitalization of less than $500 million and, consequently, employ the majority of the country’s public company board members. However, most governance resources are directed toward large-cap boards—whereas small-cap directors, with fewer resources, fewer advisors, and more tenuous balance sheets, can have much greater sway over their companies’ successes or failures.

Author Adam J. Epstein will discuss his handbook for small-cap company directors, detailing the challenges they face, the important differences between small-cap and large-cap governance, and tips to help small-cap company directors govern effectively. 

Join this webcast to learn about:

  • How small-cap corporate governance differs from large-cap
  • What large-cap boards can learn from the best practices of small-cap boards
  • What skills and backgrounds small-cap boards need to do their jobs effectively
  • Supervising corporate finance at small-cap companies;
  • Hiring/managing professional service providers for small-cap companies; and 
  • Overseeing capital market engagement at small-cap companies.

Who Should Attend: Current and prospective board members of public companies; CEOs and other C-suite executives and management; Governance professionals; Attorneys; Corporate secretaries; Financial advisors; Fund managers
