stock options

Stock options are a type of equity compensation that allows employees to purchase shares of stock in the company they work for at a set price. Stock options can be an important part of a compensation package, and they can provide employees with a valuable way to build equity in the company.

However, stock options can also have some drawbacks:

  • If the company's stock price falls below the option price, the options will be "underwater."
  • This can lead to stock dilution, which can negatively impact shareholders.
