Who is your source as the title "field director" doesn't exist in their organization. Also, options are distributed during the annual review process which does occur in late Feb. but "150K" is a very light number. GME distributes options from the Store Manager position and up. With over 5000 stores, even at 100 shares per SM, 1/3 of the options would be gone.
While I hope that there is a 3/2 or 2/1 split, it seems like your information may not be accurate.
