Under a restricted stock agreement, nontransferable, unregistered shares are created and issued to certain individuals connected with the company, usually to a company’s key employees. These shares vest over time and are valued at the time of vesting. The benefits of restricted stock include encouraging employees to commit to your company for a minimum amount of time as well as ensuring employee investment in the success of your business.
Trading restricted stock is closely regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), so it is advisable to consult with an attorney about the process.
