AMIS 522 – Quiz 5 Name________________________________________________ Use the following information to answer questions 1 through 3. Vacaro Corporation provides a variety of share-based compensation plans to its employees. Under its executive stock option plan, Vacaro granted incentive stock options on January 1, 2011, that permit executives to acquire 10 million of the company’s $1 par common shares within the next 8 years, but not before December 31, 2014 (the vesting date). The exercise price is the market price of the shares on the date of grant, $18.50 per share. The fair value of the 10 million options, estimated by an appropriate option pricing model, is $5 per option. Two million options were forfeited when an executive resigned in 2012. All other options were exercised on January 15, 2015, when the stock’s price unexpectedly jumped to $25 per share. Ignore taxes. 1.
