Become a Master of Modifications


Dive into one of the trickiest areas of accounting for stock compensation - modification accounting.



We'll discuss such modifications as option/award exchange repricing, vest schedule adjustments, and employee to non-employee and non-employee to employee modifications. During this on-demand presentation, we will also shed light into one of the deepest complexities - terminations. We'll explain how to handle the accounting, tax and administrative impact of vesting acceleration, non-compete, clawback and other treatments of terminated employees' awards.

Michael Mauro, Consultant, Professional Services at Certent, and Kathy Biddle, Manager of Accounting Services at Certent, will help you:

  • Gain a solid understanding of modifications and how they affect vesting
  • Examine examples of the treatment of specific types of modifications
  • Look at the effects of M&A Activity and equity restructuring on equity awards
  • Explore the complexities of terminations
  • Develop a plan for the accounting, tax, and administrative impact of terminated employees' awards

Your privacy is very important to us.


Together, we’re in it to win it.
