Founders Circle Explores Tick Tock of Stock Options

Mandated by the SEC, unexercised employee stock options expire 10 years from date of grant and are absorbed back into the company. In the past this was never a problem, but now that top companies are staying private longer they are forced to rethink how they manage employee incentive stock programs. Goodwin partners Lynda Galligan and Anthony McCusker are featured in Founders Circle’s Kitchen Table Interview series, addressing the challenges the 10-year lifespan for unexercised employee stock options creates, and steps companies can take to help their most valued employees.
