Restricted Stock Units (RSUs)
http://www.nelsonroberts.com/ Subscribe for more: http://bit.ly/2wWJaqc If you’re compensated in company stock, the alphabet soup of ISOs, NQSOs, RSUs, ESPP can be confusing to say the least. Today, I’m going to cover Restricted Stock Units or RSUs which have become a common way for established companies to compensate their employees, however, many people don’t understand the tax implications and risks associated. RSUs, also called Stock Awards, tie a component of employee compensation to the success of the stock. They are subject to a vesting schedule which provides an incentive for an employee to stay with the company as unvested shares are forfeited at the termination of employment. For example, Lindsey is granted 400 RSUs with an annual vesting schedule of 25% of the grant. At the end of the first year, she receives 100 shares, or one quarter of the shares granted. An additional 100 shares vest each year thereafter. If she were to leave the company any unvested shares would be forfeited. At the time of vesting, the RSU shares become common shares and are transferred to Lindsey. The market value of those RSU shares is taxed to her just like ordinary income. The company will often withhold a portion of the vested RSUs to pay the tax liability based on her withholding rates. If she holds the shares, her tax basis will be the prevailing market value per share at the date of vesting. Once sold, the proceeds will be subject to capital gains holding period and tax rates. Many people don’t understand that the decision to hold on to RSUs after vesting is the equivalent of a decision to purchase stock in the company at the current price. For Lindsey, the exposure to her company in the form of both employment and future RSU vesting may be sufficient for her financial objectives and diversification may be prudent. I encourage you to consult a financial advisor about your individual situation. Nameless Warning - You're Worth It: http://youtu.be/dtHli5Y2E14

When to Cash Out on RSUs
Stock Options and RSUs are part of some compensation plans as an incentive to help the company succeed. As these asset vehicles vests, the amount of stock you hold in your company grows. There are real money assets and should be treated as part of your total portfolio. Most would agree that you should have less than 10% of your total invest-able portfolio in one single company. If you let the assets vest over time, this may grow over sized and is generally a good idea to reduce the exposure and invest in other areas with the cash generated.

Pros and Cons of Restricted Stock Units (RSUs)
Pros and Cons of Restricted Stock Units (RSUs) Stock compensation can be very valuable to employees and the employer because having an owners’ interest in the company you work for can increase productivity and job satisfaction. Stock compensation is also a built-in investment plan for employees, which allows them to realize the potential of having assets that work for you. One threat that most employees often ignore is the real possibility that the stock may go down. A company’s stock can go down for many reasons, but here are just a few: a general market decline loss of competitive advantage product recalls products fading from relevancy.

What are Employee stock options (ESO)?
The use of options is very common in business, as they allow the parties to the contract to create today a right that can be materialized in the future usually within a pre-defined time frame. In Employee Stock Options, the Option’s underlying asset is a Company Stock, the Parties to the Options Contract are an employer and employee, and the Option itself is part of a payment Package. Obviously, the option is always only about buying the underlying asset – Company’s Stock. ► Want to know more?

What is RESTRICTED STOCK? What does RESTRICTED STOCK mean? RESTRICTED STOCK meaning & explanation
What is RESTRICTED STOCK? What does RESTRICTED STOCK mean? RESTRICTED STOCK meaning - RESTRICTED STOCK definition - RESTRICTED STOCK explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Restricted stock, also known as letter stock or restricted securities, refers to stock of a company that is not fully transferable (from the stock-issuing company to the person receiving the stock award) until certain conditions (restrictions) have been met. Upon satisfaction of those conditions, the stock is no longer restricted, and becomes transferable to the person holding the award. Restricted stock is often used as a form of employee compensation, in which case it typically becomes transferrable ("vests") upon the satisfaction of certain conditions, such as continued employment for a period of time or the achievement of particular product-development milestones, earnings per share goals or other financial targets. Restricted stock is a popular alternative to stock options, particularly for executives, due to favorable accounting rules and income tax treatment. Restricted stock units (RSUs) have more recently become popular among venture companies as a hybrid of stock options and restricted stock. RSUs involve a promise by the employer to grant restricted stock at a specified point in the future, with the general intention of delaying the recognition of income to the employee while maintaining the advantageous accounting treatment of restricted stock. Typical vesting conditions for restricted stock awards in venture capital–backed startups may include the following: A period of time before vesting, intended to prevent employees from "walking away" from the venture. There is generally a one-year "cliff" representing the formative stage of the company when the founders' work is most needed, followed by a more gradual vesting over a four-year schedule representing a more incremental growth stage. Founders are sometimes permitted to recognize a portion of the time spent at the company before investment in their vesting schedule, generally from six months to two years. "Double trigger" acceleration provision, stating that the restricted stock vests if the company is acquired by a third party and the employment of the grantee is terminated within a certain time frame. This protects employees from losing the unvested portion of their equity share award in case the employees are forced out by new management after a change in control. Another alternative is "single trigger" acceleration under which the change of control itself accelerates the vesting of the stock, but this structure is more risky for investors because following an acquisition of the company, key employees will not have any equity award that provides a financial incentive to remain with the company. "Market standoff provision", stating that holders of restricted stock may not sell for a certain period of time (usually 180 days) after an initial public offering. This is intended to stabilize the stock price of the company after the IPO by preventing a large sale of stock on the market by the founders. Executive compensation practices came under increased congressional scrutiny in the United States when abuses at corporations such as Enron became public. The American Jobs Creation Act of 2004, P.L. 108-357, added Sec. 409A, which accelerates income to employees who participate in certain nonqualified deferred compensation plans (including stock option plans). Later in 2004, FASB issued Statement no. 123(R), Share-Based Payment, which requires expense treatment for stock options for annual periods beginning in 2005. (Statement no. 123(R) is now incorporated in FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic 718, Compensation—Stock Compensation.) Prior to 2006, stock options were a popular form of employee compensation because it was possible to record the cost of compensation as zero so long as the exercise price was equal to the fair market value of the stock at the time of granting. Under the same accounting standards, awards of restricted stock would result in recognizing compensation cost equal to the fair market value of the restricted stock.

Basics of Restricted Stock Units (RSUs)
Basics of Restricted Stock Units (RSUs) Many of the clients I’ve helped came from the tech industry and it really amazed me about how many of them had built up wealth and investments without really understanding how they work. Yes, living within their means played a huge part in their financial success, but so had investing in retirement accounts and receiving employer stock awards. Retirements and investments receive much of the attention from other financial planners, so in this post, I want to focus on employer stock rewards, more specifically Restricted Stock Units. Most employers that offer stock in form of compensation have switched from Stock Options to Restricted Stock Units or RSU’s. Here are the highlights of how RSU’s work: Read More @ www.levelupfinancialplanning.com/restricted-stock-unit-rsus-strategy-guide/

A Video on How Not to Screw Up Your RSU's
You're feeling pretty confident these days. First, you're doing awesome work at a great company, and second, your restricted stock units (RSUs) have vested. Now for the big question: When do you cash your shares out? If you're like most RSU recipients, you plan to hold on to your shares for a year before selling. That way, you'll avoid the very high tax rate on short-term capital gains, and pay the lower, long-term capital gains rate, right? Actually that's not how RSUs work. Amazingly, their tax treatment is something that few people in the tech industry understand. Your taxes are calculated and withheld by your company as soon as your units vest. And that tax cut is painful, by the way: Depending on where you live, the IRS and your state of residence could end up taking nearly 50% of your stocks value. So to be clear, there is no reason to wait a year before dipping into your vested stock. In fact, if you wait a year to sell your stock, and the stock price falls during that time, you'll feel foolish because you'll have paid taxes on the higher, original amount. The bottom line: You might as well go ahead and do whatever you're going to do with your vested stock. And for a lot of you, there are two choices: 1. Sell shares immediately; start living a little larger. 2. Keep shares and let them appreciate so you can one day live much, much larger. But allow me to suggest something crazy: Use your stock proceeds to create an actual, grown-up investment portfolio—one that contains a blend of different investments rather than just the stock of your company. Building diversified investment portfolios is standard practice among people who have money they don't want to lose. I could explain the academic theory about why diversification is the best way to balance risk and reward, but in the end, the logic is pretty simple: Don't keep all your eggs in one basket. And when you own nothing but company stock that is exactly what you're doing. I know what you're thinking—that this is loser talk. Your company's stock is only going to go up, and never down, right? And every share you keep is going to make you that much richer. There's one problem though: Even tech companies have long periods of flat or falling stock prices. And yes, they go bust, a la Pets.com, Webvan and Covad. I know, I know, your company is different. But when you limit your investments to the stock of any one company, that's really risky behavior. If your company runs into trouble, not only will your stock crater, but you might be out of a job as well. When your wealth is all in the form of your company's stock, you're not just putting all your eggs in one basket, you're living in that basket too. So consider this: You already have a good amount of wealth through your RSUs, and you're probably going to receive a lot more units over the years. You are already successful, and you will continue to be more and more successful. Now it's time to start protecting your wealth by creating a real, well-rounded investment portfolio. By all means buy yourself some nice things. And keep a bunch of your company stock so you can live the good life one day. But in the meantime, sit down with a financial advisor and talk about taking part of your stock and building a real investment portfolio. If you'd like to talk about RSUs, taxes or investing, don't hesitate to get in touch.

Restricted Stock (Accounting For Issuing & Forfeiture, Unearned Compensation & Expense, FMV)
Accounting for restricted stock issued and forfeiture where the vesting requirements are not met, Restricted stock plans transfer shares of stock to employees with the agreement the shares cannot be sold, transferred or pledged until vesting occurs, the shares are subject to forfeiture if the conditions of vesting are not met, issuing restricted stock as common stock is based on the fair value of the stock at the time of issuing, the fair value of the stock is expensed as compensation expense over the service (vesting) period, the associated account is unearned compensation (deferred compensation expense) is a contra equity account, if the vesting requirements are not met the compensation expense to date has to be reversed & unearned compensation is reduced to zero, this is the case where Corp-A Restricted-Stock Plan, example On (1/1/X1) Corp-A issues 5,000 shares (C/S) as Restricted Stock to its Chief Excecutive Officer (CFO): 1-Stock's fair value $60/share, $5 par on issue date (1/1/X1), 2-Related service period 4-years for restricted stock, 3-Vesting occurs if CFO stays with the company 4-years, 4-On (3/1/X3) the CFO leaves the company, forefeits stock, Corp-A Restricted-Stock Plan, vesting never occurred because the CFO left the company before the service requirement was met (4-yr vesting required), detailed accounting by Allen Mursau

Employee Compensation: RSUs (Restricted Stock Units)

Kevin Mahoney is the founder & CEO of Illumint, which offers fee-only financial guidance for millennial parents. For more info, check out illumintadvisors.com. You also can connect with Kevin on: FACEBOOK https://www.facebook.com/illumintadvisors TWITTER https://twitter.com/illumintCEO INSTAGRAM http://instagram.com/illumint YOUTUBE http://www.youtube.com/illumint Video Transcript: Good morning! I’m Kevin Mahoney, the founder of Illumint, and I’m outside Amazon’s Washington, D.C. office to talk about what factors you might need to consider if your employer offers you equity in the company as part of your compensation package. Equity generally comes in two forms: Restricted stock units (or “RSUs”), which I’ll discuss today; and Stock options, which I’ll cover later this week. For now, let’s stick with RSUs. Restricted stock units aren’t actually stock. They’re just a promise from your company. Typically, the timing with which that “promise” turns into shares of stock that YOU own depends on the company’s “vesting schedule.” RSUs often “vest” incrementally, which is a sneaky way that companies incentivize you to remain in your current job -- if you leave the company before the vesting schedule ends, you miss out on the shares that haven’t vested yet. As RSUs vest, they also turn from a promise into tangible compensation, which means taxes. For RSUs, you’ll pay taxes on the current market value of the shares, based on your ordinary income tax bracket. Your company usually will withhold the tax on your behalf -- so you don’t need to find excess cash to send to the IRS. There’s a second type of tax potentially at play here, which is capital gains tax. If you hold on to your vested shares for a period of time and the stock price increases, then you will owe capital gains tax on the earnings, whenever you decide to sell the shares. If you sell the shares immediately after vesting, though, you likely won’t owe much (if anything) in capital gains tax. Your decision to hold or sell your shares may depend on numerous variables, but keep one important thing in mind: this is an investment in your own company, which also pays your salary. If the company begins to struggle, you’re at risk for both investment losses and unemployment -- ouch. For this reason, you may be better off diversifying your investment Check back soon to learn how, compared to RSUs, stock options present a slightly different set of income and tax considerations.

Should Boards Reconsider the Benefits of Stock Options?
Host: TK Kerstetter Guest: Jamie McGough, Partner, Meridian Compensation Partners In the early 2000s, stock options were clearly the incentive of choice. Accounting rule changes and investor pressures have pushed stock options out of favor; restricted stock awards now seem to take their place in pay plans. Why, then, do private equity firms—who are often among the largest and certainly the most involved investors—still use stock options among their portfolio companies? Jamie McGough, a partner with Meridian Compensation Partners, makes his case on why the use of stock options has diminished and why he thinks companies might want to reconsider stock option plans in their executive pay packages.
Stock Options (Issuing, Exercising & Expired Options, Compensation Expense, PIC Options)

Amazon Raises Their Minimum Wage To $15 ... But There's A Catch!
Amazon garnered praise for raising the minimum wage for its hourly workers to $15 yesterday, but the widely-publicized move also came at the expense of monthly bonuses and stock options. The company explained its decision to shift to a new stock purchase program in the announcement blog post yesterday, citing that hourly employees preferred the “predictability and immediacy of cash to RSUs,” or restricted stock units, but the post doesn’t mention the loss of monthly incentives, which Bloomberg reported earlier today. Several Amazon warehouse employees have criticized the move, stating they would actually be losing thousands in incentive pay. Currently, warehouse workers get two shares of Amazon stock when they’re hired ($1,952.76 per share as of writing), and an additional stock option each year. After the changes take effect, the RSU program will be phased out for stocks that vest in 2020 and 2021, and it will be replaced with a direct stock purchase plan by the end of next year. An Amazon warehouse worker told The Verge via email that the news was devastating to fulfillment employees, many of whom depend on their RSU and VCP (variable compensation pay, a performance-based monthly bonus program) incentives on top of their hourly wages. VCP incentives, which are dependent on good attendance and hitting productivity targets, could get Amazon workers an 8 percent monthly bonus, and a 16 percent bonus during the peak November and December seasons. Amazon workers have been responding to Sen. Bernie Sanders’ tweet praising the minimum wage raise, citing that on November 1st, many workers will have their paychecks cut, not raised.
