Your firm represents Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corp (BAH), a publicly traded corporation listed with the NY Stock Exchange. The company wishes to invest in some expansion of operations. To this end, each of the corporate officers and members of the board of the directors are willing to defer 50% of their compensation in the coming year in exchange for the equivalent amount of preferred stock at the valuation of $15 a share, which is significantly lower than what the stock has been trading at lately. Your managing partner has asked you to draft a SOX Compliant disclosure letter to shareholders concerning this proposal.
Your memo should be 2-3 pages in length. Cite any applicable statutes referenced in the letter per Harvard Blue Book.
