16.3 Chopped: Cutting Back Your Equity Charges

Everyone loves a good discount code, so we're here to share some discount codes for your equity awards! Equity awards are great, but the accounting charge is often higher than anticipated. Lowering the accounting fair value can mean less financial statement expense and/or more awards to employees. In this session, you'll discover how to save on your equity awards using a variety of design levers, including techniques like setting tough but fair performance goals, adding post-vest holding periods or performance underpins value caps, and optimizing valuation assumptions. Don't pay full price for your equity awards, get the discount code!
