Deborah Meshulam, an expert on securities enforcement practices and a partner with DLA Piper, NY based global law firm suggests one clear way to avoid a clawback prosecution is to simply pay back any relevant incentive-based compensation before the SEC initiates an enforcement action, thereby eliminating the SEC's cause of action.
She is of the opinion that while there are other arguments which the accused executives can use as defenses, they are yet to be tried and tested.
"The Jenkins case also suggests possible defenses to a SOX 304 claim, arguing that the SEC must prove causation, i.e., that the reimbursement it seeks is traceable to the company's misstatement of financial results, or arguing that the reimbursement sought by the SEC violates the Due Process Clause prohibition against excessive punitive damage awards. While these defenses are untested, legislators' and regulators' interest in pressing for more no-fault clawbacks suggests that they may be tested soon, Meshulam opines.
According to her, CEOs and CFOs who, pursuant to SOX, must certify that they are responsible for the design and operation of effective financial controls and the accuracy of a company's financial statements should heed the warning of the court in Jenkins that "Section 304 provides an be rigorous in their creation and certification of internal controls," Meshulam observed in her article with DLA Piper.
