2018 Private Company Stock Compensation Survey

The NASPP is now conducting the 2018 Private Company Stock Compensation Survey—the first and only comprehensive examination of stock plan design and administration issues for private companies.

We invite you to participate in this survey to gain access to valuable, never-before-available benchmarking data on equity practices and trends unique to private companies, including:

  • Plan design
  • Liquidity and secondary markets
  • Valuation
  • Resale restrictions
  • Vesting upon IPO
  • Early exercise options
  • Cap tables
  • NQSOs and ISOs
  • RSUs and phantom stock
  • Performance awards
  • Administrative practices and communications

The survey is estimated to take only 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
