Long-Term Incentive Plan Design
To what extent do your key executives and employees share an ownership mentality? To strengthen the tie between shareholders and executives, we develop motivating long-term incentive plans based on your company’s strategic and financial goals. We appreciate that many factors influence long-term incentive plan design and we guide you through the process from start to finish. We help you navigate through many decision points such as selecting the right equity vehicles, determining share usage and equity grant allocation, analyzing income and balance sheet impact, achieving the desired tax treatment, complying with regulatory requirements and following recommendations from proxy advisory firms. We determine the performance features of the long-term incentive plan, including metrics that drive company value and the appropriate pay-for-performance relationships. We are knowledgeable about all types of equity, such as restricted stock, stock options, stock appreciation rights, performance share plans, as well as synthetic and phantom equity. From planning, design, approval, implementation and communication, we lead you to the appropriate long-term incentive program for your company.
