ABSTRACT
Ironically, many corporations will likely discover that tying equity-based executive compensation more closely to performance will cost millions of dollars when there is a merger or acquisition. The reason: internal Revenue Code Section 280G, which is designed to discourage "excess" parachute payments, often assesses a significantly higher toll on performance-based compensation than on time-vested equity payments. There is no magic remedy, but advance planning can often help mitigate the impact. This article describes the dilemma and suggests several approaches to the challenge.
