CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER OF MASSACHUSETTS HIGH TECHNOLOGY COMPANY, EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENT AND EQUITY ARRANGEMENTS
As a Boston executive employment attorney, I am skilled at helping executives negotiate strong employment agreements and equity arrangements with their employers. The following are some examples of how I helped the CFO of a Massachusetts high-technology achieve a favorable employment agreement:
Ensuring responsibilities are outlined: As part of our negotiations, I helped confirm the CFO’s responsibility as a key figure in pre-IPO planning, SEC compliance, and ensured the inclusion of the CFO’s role in the selection of an outside accounting firm, an outside law firm, and the selection of underwriters, all of whom were to report to the CEO and the Board.
Negotiating issuance of stock: We negotiated for an issuance of restricted stock that was equal to a negotiated percentage of all outstanding shares for the company, with an 83(b) election and stock appreciation rights equal to 80% of the compensation deduction taken by the company with each election made.
Stockholder rights agreement: We negotiated a stockholder rights agreement with piggy back registration rights, information rights and cash-out (put) rights for all shares acquired.
