If you’ve been granted stock or stock options, congratulations. They could just make you rich. Or make your employees rich.
For a company founder, it is easy to understand the benefits of providing stock or stock options to employees. It’s a way of compensating employees that doesn’t drain cash from the business. And employees feel invested in the future success of the company.
For an employee, owning stock or options to buy stock can be a huge financial windfall. Think Microsoft or Expedia, Tableau, Zulily, Starbucks, Amazon. Google is known for having turned its janitors into very wealthy people.
But what goes up can come down. Way down. Even for highly successful companies, stock prices can fluctuate greatly. So how does timing affect options and their exercise? Is there value in options if the company isn’t or doesn’t go public. And what about taxes?
Confused? Join us to learn the basics of owning or granting stock and stock options and get your questions answered.
