Anyone else noticed that Netlist independent director Thomas F. Lagatta's latest stock option grant is 5 times larger than his colleagues’ and 5 times larger than his previous grants? I wonder what he did for Netlist recently to earn that extra special large grant.
"5 times larger than his colleagues’ and 5 times larger than his previous grants"
That would suggest he provided a lot more services compared to previous years AND compared to other independent directors.
It so nice not being able to read the junk from Fhuck and studless. Ignore is so nice. As to your question. It's probably contractual. I did consulting work for a large insurance company where they gave options to employees. The managers were given X number and they could divide them up based upon performance of their direct reports. At the executive level, they were hard coded; couldn't make a change. When I asked, I was told that they negotiated the amount as a part of their contract. A guy at Lagatta's level is not going to come cheap and he can add to NLST's worldwide sales which is invaluable. Your going to pay for that talent.
