Jeremy L. Goldstein, Esq., is the founder of the private law firm Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates, LLC of New York City. Attorney Goldstein’s main practice focuses on the payment system for executives and executive regulatory issues. Jeremy Goldstein counsels’ corporate leaders, compensation managers, and many fiscal management groups on employee and investor compensation packages, performance-based pay programs, stock options and how to use the Earnings per Share (EPS) system.
Attorney Goldstein has worked with many corporations like Verizon, Bank of America, and Goldman Sachs on how to execute EPS and other compensatory based programs. EPS numbers are very important because it is a determinant for the payment of dividends and stock. Its value depends on a company’s earnings, which is important to investors. The higher the EPS figure is, the better it performs because it is a sign of greater earnings meaning the company is in a strong financial position.
At first EPS seems to be a good system for compensation programs, but it can also produce a competitive nature of shares and trading which could lead to unfair advantages. Thus, there are corporate leaders who are both pro and anti-EPS benefit challengers. As a leading executive compensation lawyer, Jeremy Goldstein believes that a compromise can be achieved. Jeremy states that rather than ignoring the pay per performance system, CEOs should be held more responsible for how they disseminate financial rewards, like executive misrepresenting monetary results to drive up share sales.
Jeremy believes that matching up pay per performance with the company’s long-term growth is a great measurement for repetitive share growth that is fair for all involved. Attorney Jeremy L.
