Understanding executive equity valuations and handling repurchase/clawback disputes:  Repurchase rights can often be lurking in the fine print of equity grants and can leave executives vulnerable to forfeiture of their equity at diminished valuations, especially on termination. Different valuation methods yield a range of results, and it is important for an executive to know what to ask for upfront, to avoid surprises down the road and also to understand ‘Cause’ and ‘Good Reason’ and good leaver/bad leaver clauses in employment agreements, Shareholder/LTIP agreements, Phantom shares and stock options.
