Patterns of stock option exercise in the United States


Steven Huddart

This paper considers employee Exercise behavior from three perspectives. First, Employee stock options (ESOs) are distinguished from "traded stock options" (TSOs) and certain valuation considerations peculiar to employee stock options are reviewed. Then employee exercise behavior at a small sample of companies is summarized and related to the valuation issues. Finally, the impact of taxation on employee exercise decisions and some tax planning opportunities afforded by options are detailed.
