“Retirement provisions on equity grants have always been a challenge but we are now seeing companies rethink some of their past practices.  We are receiving more and more questions from clients now on how to better handle their current provisions within their equity administration team and streamline those provisions if possible.”
- Julie Kenia CEP Stock and Option Solutions


Retirement and retirement eligibility provisions in stock plans cause more than a few issues. From their impact on expense under ASC 718 to Code Section 409A issues to collecting tax on shares that have not been delivered, theses provisions are rife with challenges for even the most accomplished stock plan professional.

What are the issues and how are other companies handling them? Join our expert panel for an overview of the issues, a review of some market research data compiled from a recent SOS client survey, and tips and tricks for handling these troublesome provisions most effectively.





One hour of Certified Equity Professional continuing education credit is available for attending. See the CEPI website for more information on CEP continuing education requirements.
