About the Course

The course begins with a description of what a restricted stock unit is and what its fair value is in terms of IFRS 2 based on stock or cash settlement. It differentiates between the value of an RSU from the company’s perspective and the value to an employee.

This is followed by a step-by-step walkthrough of valuing a stock-settled RSU with certain service and market vesting conditions for determining the expense for accounting disclosure purposes. This entails:

  • Simulating the price of the underlying stock using a Monte Carlo Simulator both for normal and antithetic scenarios
  • Factoring the market condition into the model at each future point in time
  • Assessing the likelihood of meeting the market condition
  • Factoring in forfeitures
  • For each trigger event, determining of probabilities of termination and vesting
  • Calculating the Total Expected Cost for the RSU
  • Calculating the cumulative RSU expense from grant date to valuation date

After taking this course you will be able to:
