In order to save money, corporations and organizations have stopped providing stock options to their employees. Other than the need to save money, there exist three other reasons that have made the companies stop providing the stock options according to Jeremey Goldstein. Some of the reasons include a change in the value leading to lower stock values that deny employees the chance to exercise the options. The second reason is due to the fact that the stock options are tedious and often lead to burdens in accounting. The third and final reason is that employees are aware of the current economic situations that render the stock valueless.
In the event that a company cannot offer stock options, it should have some sort of a backup plan. According to Jeremy Goldstein, the best available plan in place of the stock plan is the Knock out stock option. The knock out stock options is the same as the conventional stock option because they have time limits. It differs with the conventional option since when its shares drop below a given limit, employees abandon it.
The knock out option has advantages. The option relieves corporations from paying huge taxes. It reduces taxation costs to companies with compensation plans for their executive staff thereby saving money. The option also excludes complications associated with stock compensation. However, the option does not solve all the problems associated with stock compensation.
