A Deep Dive into Performance-Based Equity Compensation: Design & Accounting

Date: Thursday, August 28, 2014
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT There are no CPE Credits for this Solution Demonstration.
The landscape of performance-based equity compensation continues to evolve in the wake of investor lawsuits in 2013 related to the “say-on-pay” provision of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. In this new landscape, finance and accounting executives, as well as stock plan administrators, must understand the different ways that equity compensation can be tied to company performance as well as the accounting implications of different equity-based pay-for-performance vehicles. This webinar provides a primer in the key accounting implications of these vehicles that company shareholders are increasingly demanding to see.

Join us to discover how to avoid common performance-based compensation design and accounting pitfalls. Our presenters will illustrate how to address specific issues including:

  • Key questions to consider when selecting performance metrics
  • The treatment of performance stock and performance units
  • How to handle accrued and life-to-date expenses
  • Market-based performance conditions
  • Implicit vs. derived requisite service periods
  • The execution of EPS guidance per ASC 260 and application of the Treasury Stock Method to the shares considered issuable
After attending this event you will be able to:
Understand how to properly account for equity awards with performance or market based conditions upon vesting
Learn to assess the different performance metrics and choose the right metrics for your company
Educate your team how to handle accounting and administrative hazards common to performance plans
