The current environment is one of unprecedented change for long-term equity incentives. External pressures to reign in dilution and align pay more closely with performance have never been higher. The 2013 Domestic Stock Plan Design Survey, co-sponsored by Deloitte Consulting LLP and the National Association of Stock Plan Professionals (NASPP), provides key insights into how companies are responding to these pressures.
Published since 1996, this survey is the most comprehensive analysis of equity incentive plans (over 250 stock plan design questions), covering stock options, restricted stock/units, and performance awards. Over 400 companies completed the survey and full results were published in late 2013 to survey participants. Following are the top five key trends in stock compensation that can be drawn from the survey.
Deloitte Consulting LLP and the NASPP will be releasing the questionnaire to the 2014 Stock Plan Administration Survey by April 7, 2014. This is the industry’s most comprehensive survey on stock plan administration practices, covering stock plan administration, employee stock purchase plans, insider trading compliance, stock ownership guidelines, and non-employee director stock grants. Don’t miss your chance to participate in the survey and receive access to the latest trends in stock plan administration practices. Only those who complete the survey will have access to the full survey results.
