    Back to the Future on Stock Awards - One Year Ago

    I still think the a high watermark makes sense for pricing stock options and so did many others.

    • This is my philosophical perspective on stock options as an incentive, but I would not have given CC any stock options, or only a token amount. Meeting 58% of milestones is not-so-good, above the failure level but below good performance. What Dean is perpetuating by giving large options without accomplishment is a culture of rewarding mediocrate and failure. Once a partnership is signed, then the board can then issue an on-the-spot option grant at the then higher price, to justly and reflect the accomplishment and the timing that it was accomplished at. To be clear, I am not against partial bonus for partial accomplishment, but only for where the base salary is low. In CC's case, his strategic objective is different, higher reward, higher base, higher standards.

      Sentiment: Buy
