Seven out of ten US public companies have a market capitalization of less than $500 million and, consequently, employ the majority of the country’s public company board members. However, most governance resources are directed toward large-cap boards—whereas small-cap directors, with fewer resources, fewer advisors, and more tenuous balance sheets, can have much greater sway over their companies’ successes or failures.
Author Adam J. Epstein will discuss his handbook for small-cap company directors, detailing the challenges they face, the important differences between small-cap and large-cap governance, and tips to help small-cap company directors govern effectively.

- How small-cap corporate governance differs from large-cap
