The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone, including employees with equity compensation. The expert resources at myStockOptions (https://www.mystockoptions.com) can help them manage their grants through volatility, or make the most of their value now to get them through hardships.
“Employees may suddenly need to come up with cash to meet living expenses or other financial demands,” observes Bruce Brumberg, the editor-in-chief of myStockOptions. “One source can be proceeds from company stock, whether acquired via the open market or equity compensation (e.g. stock options, RSUs, ESPPs).”
Before they sell, employees should read the myStockOptions article 7 Things To Know When You Sell Company Stock To Raise Cash, https://www.mystockoptions.com/articles/topics-to-understand-when-you-sell-stock-to-raise-cash-quickly
“If you do sell company stock quickly to raise cash, be careful,” warns Mr. Brumberg, a securities lawyer. “Depending on your access to confidential company information, trading company stock can actually get you into serious legal trouble, including criminal liability for insider trading.”
