On Thursday September 1, 2022, 2022, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on “Stock Rights That Protect the Value of Your Executive Equity Compensation.”
This new article is designed for CEOs, C-level and senior executives, who have recently received a job offer or expect to receive a job offer and will be negotiating terms of executive compensation which will include executive equity.
In those negotiations, executive equity is often a very significant and often a major part of the executive compensation and a often a driver to accept a job offer. This is so because executive equity offers the prospect of greater financial upside value than from your fairly fixed and limited cash compensation. This special upside potential for executive equity arises from three different factors: (a) Appreciation – with your service the stock price or value might rise significantly, (b) Liquidity Event – a potential acquisition or an IPO might also significantly increase value, (c) Favorable Taxation – with appropriate structuring, appreciated equity on cash out may be taxed at a much lower rate than cash compensation for much greater take home pay.
Thus, given the high importance of equity in the CEO’s or C-level executive’s compensation package the focus of my article then moves to discuss these five (5) critical areas of stock rights and terms you want to be sure to give proper attention in your negotiations to give you the best chance to achieve the potential value from the equity you are granted:
