Accounting for Change: Common Situations Where Equity Awards Are Modified
Outstanding equity awards are subject to change or modification for a wide variety of reasons including corporate activity and changing company circumstances and objectives. Mergers & acquisitions and spin-offs occur on a regular basis within today’s business environment, and can have significant impact on equity programs and restructuring. Modifications of equity awards can also take place to adapt to varying individual or company circumstances, requiring special accounting treatment as well. In this session, we’ll cover key accounting considerations for each of these common situations (i.e., M&A, spin-offs, terminations, and underwater stock options) and delve into design considerations of each. Join us to refresh your knowledge on these topics, learn new tips, and be ready for any changes to your equity.
