We support our clients in navigating the tension between the need to retain talent using equity in a competitive environment, managing shareholder expectations and ensuring relevant governance practices are in place.
Our professionals are available to support at any stage of the development or renewal of a share reserve for purposes of equity-based compensation.
We conduct dilution and burn rates analyses related to equity compensation. Our analyses are complemented by market considerations (practices of similar size/industry peers) and how those are expected to be received by the shareholder community.
We help our clients determine the share reserve size based on their needs in normal-course and with respect to proxy advisor and shareholder expectations.
Reserve Terms & Provisions
We draft or review term sheets for underlying equity incentive programs, and we help our clients align their plans to their preferred governance practices. We also support our clients on how to structure effective disclosure.
