Companies had decided to stop offering stock options to employees. Jeremy Goldstein was consulted to give counsel regarding the problem and providing a working solution. Some of the reason for withholding the stock options included, stockholders risk having an overhang in the case where the stock value drops. The benefits resemble casino chips due to the unpredictable nature of the industry. In the case where the benefits are more, employees could be tempted to negotiate salary increase leading to accounting problems.
There are several advantages to stock options benefits including a supplement to the income. The options also give a much-deserved value of an employee’s worth. Nonetheless, Jeremy Goldstein came up with some solutions. He encouraged the employers to adopt a barrier known as the knockout. This system provides benefits, but employees lose them when share plummet. With knock out the options expire by half when the company shares drop meaning the employee receives some compensation.
With knock out, an employee can drop them when the shares remain dormant for a week. The option also makes sure that shareholders are not victim to overhang. The solutions offered are an incentive to employees because the benefits are relative to their efforts.
