Course Summary

Equity can be a great addition to your employees’ compensation packages, but it’s important to remember that managing stock options comes with more considerations than a direct-deposit paycheck.

Ethena’s Equity 101 course will turn your team into stock options experts. It covers the ins and outs of taxes and legal considerations so your employees can not only appreciate their equity investment, but make the most of it long term.

Included Modules:

A first look at stock options, why understanding them is important for your career and growth, and an overview of what’s to come in the course.

Stock Option Basics

Definitions of relevant terms (i.e. exercise price, vesting, cap table, spread, FMV, etc.) alongside an explanation of the two main types of stock options.

Exercising Stock Options

Standard steps for exercising options, plus a look at early exercise, tax implications, and a framework for analyzing your risk tolerance.

Legal Regulations

Stock options through the legal lens, featuring U.S.-specific laws, insider trading considerations, and how to approach ethical decision-making.

Why is this training important?

Training employees on equity compensation is crucial for fostering understanding, engagement, and alignment with the company’s goals and values. Equity compensation, such as stock options, restricted stock units, or employee stock purchase plans, represents a significant component of many employees’ total compensation package. By providing comprehensive training on how equity compensation works, including its potential benefits, risks, and tax implications, employees can make informed decisions regarding their financial future and feel more invested in the success of your company.
