Jeremy Goldstein Explains How Corporations Can Benefit From Knockout Options

Most companies are foregoing stock options owing to the complex reasons shrouded in saving money. Jeremy Goldstein states that stock options are better than equities, additional wages and insurance coverage since they provide equivalent value to all workers. Additionally, stock options encourage employees to work hard to increase the share value of the company, thus boost their personal earnings. Jeremy explains that corporations can use the “Knockout” option to continue benefiting from stock options.

Knockout options have the properties of other options, only that they expire once their share value drops below a specific amount. The knockout mechanism is perfect for volatile stocks as their initial accounting costs are reduced. In addition, these options lower the risk of investors facing overhang threats from options that cannot be exercised. With Knockout options, companies can benefit from accurate and lower executive compensation packages.
