In one of the recent blogs, Jeremy Goldstein wrote about why most of the employees are not choosing stock options like earlier. He said that while it has the potential to increase the earnings considerably if the company does well, and the stock market soars, but there is a chance that the stock market might plunge as well. In such cases, the stock options become useless for the employees, who otherwise were banking on it.
It is for this reason, Jeremy Goldstein said that the companies should consider using the knockout option that would have a similar timeline for exercising as the conventional stock options, but if the prices of the stocks fall below the stipulated amount, it will become void. The knockout option would help the company to save its market capital and cheap buyout while also giving the much-needed safety to the employees, who are looking for security in their finances.
