The Impact of COVID-19 on Stock-Based Compensation

Key Takeaways

As the new decade gets underway, the current equity compensation landscape has become tremendously complicated due to the impact of COVID-19 and an economy entering recession.  

A large number of new problems have arisen from the pandemic: How should new awards be designed? How should outstanding awards that are now underwater or nonperforming be addressed? What are the proxy implications of various modifications the company is contemplating? The answers to these questions carry direct implications for SEC reporting and compensation professionals. 

Join Nathan O’Connor from Equity Methods for this webinar as he provides an overview of the major issues that have emerged in recent weeks and provides practical guidance on things to look out for as 2020 continues to unfold.

Following this webinar, you will be able to: 

  • Anticipate ways that equity compensation will be adjusted in light of COVID-19
  • Recall best practices associated with modification accounting, plan design during a recession, and forecasting of tax windfalls and shortfalls
