After a general industry decline in long-term incentive (LTI) opportunity from 2008 to 2009, Exequity analyzed insider filings (Form 4) for the CEOs from Fortune 500 companies to gauge the percent change in LTI opportunity from 2009 to 2010. Overall, our study found that median LTI opportunity increased 8% relative to a 36% stock price increase over the prior year.
This Study presents the key findings from the analysis, including percent change in LTI opportunity relative to three stock price categories (greater than 60% increase, less than 60% increase and greater than 20% increase, and less than 20% increase), percent change in LTI opportunity by industry, and an in-the-money option analysis for 2009 stock option awards.
