ABSTRACT
The article discusses practical advice on different forms of equity compensation. The highest priority for a company in establishing an equity compensation program should be the economic incentives that are formed by the program and thus the behavior that these incentives elicit. Companies should choose performance measures that reflect true measures of operating performance and should preserve negative discretion for the compensation committee.
