Equity dilution disclosed by companies
Investor Responsibility Research Centre (IRRC)
Apr 2004 United States Investment - General, Corporate Governance
Although potential dilution from stock based incentives continued to rise last year, results from this research shows the rate of option grants beginning in 2002 was cut by companies, a trend that the researcher says is likely to continue. Findings also show that the rising overhang levels were largely attributable to stock options that remained underwater at the end of 2002 and into 2003.

Corporate Governance and Climate Change: Making the Connection
Major problems in Corporate Governance practices of the largest firms
Investor Responsibility Research Centre (IRRC)
Jul 2003
According to this report, most of America's biggest carbon dioxide-emitting companies , including ChevronTexaco, ExxonMobil, General Electric, Southern Company, and Xcel Energy, are not adequately disclosing the financial risks posed by climate change and also are failing to deal with global warming issues in other key corporate governance areas. The researcher says that recent corporate scandals point to the high price paid by investors, employees, and pension beneficiaries for inadequate corporate governance practices. This report uncovers that climate change is a new 'off-balance sheet' risk that could affect shareholder value.
