When an employee is awarded performance-based vesting rights, the vesting schedule for that employee is manually updated to reflect this change. As a next step, the company has to recognize or approve the performance parameters as achieved, partially achieved or not achieved at grant level. By doing this, the company can verify the performance against the vesting rights and approve the appropriate % of vesting. The remaining options get cancelled.


For example, the company can recognize say only 60% of the options should be vested. The balance 40% is not achieved and will be unvested and cancelled.


To recognize performance conditions:

  1. Click Equity Awards in the left menu, select Grants.
  2. Select the stakeholder or search for the stakeholder.
