SURVEY METHODOLOGY Shearman & Sterling LLP Survey Methodology | 105 SURVEY METHODOLOGY We reviewed the corporate governance and compensation practices of 100 of the largest U.S. public, non-controlled companies that have equity securities listed on the NYSE or Nasdaq. These companies were selected based on a combination of their latest annual revenues and market capitalizations, and are referred to as the "Top 100 Companies." Generally, we derived the data in this Survey from the annual proxy statements, compensation committee charters and corporate governance guidelines posted on the companies' websites and available as of June 1, 2018 (except where otherwise noted).
