In this paper I examine the likelihood of CEO stock option repricing and its alternatives: namely, option grant, stock grant, and “do nothing.” Multinomial logit results suggest that firms reprice options to increase sensitivity of pay to stock price and to temper down sensitivity of pay to volatility.

Option repricing has received renewed attention in the wake of the broad market declines that began in and have continued into Unlike the market contraction of that disproportionately affected technology companies, the market collapse of the past year has spared few sectors or issuers, prompting companies across industries to reexamine their equity incentive.

Companies are strongly urged to consider a value-for-value exchange as part of their ongoing. Incentive stock options (ISOs) give their recipients the option to buy a company’s stock at a specific price and within a specific range of dates.

If the price of the company’s stock later rises, the holder of the stock option can use it to purchase stock at below-market prices, which are then sold at the current market price.

The stock option holder then pockets the difference. To the extent our inferences from the repricing setting can be extended to stock option compensation in general, our study lends credence to concerns raised by critics of broad-based stock option plans that the incentive effects of option grants to rank-and-file employees are too small to have a meaningful effect on overall firm profitability.

Repricing. Stock options can pose particular challenges, given the potential for drastic spreads and the risk of outstanding options going “underwater.” After a long bull market, we may begin to see a resurgence in discussions regarding option repricing, which would revive issues last considered broadly during the financial crisis.

Incentive stock options (ISOs) provide employees with more favorable tax treatment than non-qualified stock options. An individual who exercises a non-qualified stock option must pay ordinary income taxes on the excess of the fair market value of the underlying shares on exercise over the exercise price.
