Equity Compensation Does Not Work the Way You Were Taught
On Demand until December 31, 2025

The common mantra about equity compensation is that it is best for motivation and retention. We will discuss when this is true and when it is flat out false. In topsy-turvy markets the challenges are more extreme. This timely presentation will provide tips for getting through rocky times, while still preparing for smoother sailing ahead. Learn which equity compensation tools are good for specific purposes. Learn what your CEO and CFO want to hear. We will also provide some insight into communicating the intent and structure of programs to investors and participants.

You’ll learn: 

  • What equity compensation can and cannot do. The presentation will include information on option exchange programs and repricing.
  • The history of some of the most common aspects of equity (four-year vesting for options, three-year vesting for Restricted Stock Units (RSU), termination conditions, 10-year expirations, conversion rates from options to RSUs).
  • Where design, delivery and communication cross paths and how to execute each with better success.
  • What your stock administrator can and cannot do and how to get more from them (while making them like you more).

You’ll sign-off with new confidence in these programs, and future access to one of the industry’s go-to experts when you have question.
