Phantom Stock: What Is It?

Phantom stock is an employee benefit where selected employees receive benefits of stock ownership without the company giving them actual stock. It is worth money just like real stock, and its value rises and falls with the company's actual stock (or what the company is valued at, if it's not a publicly traded company). Employees are paid out profits at the end of a pre-determined length of time.

Also known as shadow stock, simulated stock, or phantom shares, phantom stock is provided as a bonus for hard work and longevity. One form of phantom stock is Stock Appreciation Rights.

There isn't one exact definition of what phantom stock is or how companies use it. The term can apply to any reward that takes time to mature. Usually, the award is for a specific number of units, or phantom shares, that follow the price of the company's actual shares — going up as the

  • 3 min read

Corporations are the basic and traditional business entity in this and many other countries. Unless a corporation can qualify for what is called ‘pass through’ treatment by electing to be taxed under a part of the Internal Revenue Code called Subchapter S , a corporation is taxed similarly to the way an individual is taxed. Being subject to the default tax treatment is what makes a corporation a “C Corp;” being able to qualify for pass-through treatment, and actually making an election to do so, makes a corporation an “S Corp.” They are the same type of business entity, taxed dif

Pro Rata Rights

  • 8 min read

In financial terms, pro-rata rights allow an investor to maintain their portion of ownership in a company when the company takes on new investors.

Company Valuation and Pro-Rata Rights

It is important to understand the role that the valuation of your business has on pro-rata rights for other investors. This is important because the angel or venture capital investor dilutes the shares of other owners. Other owners in early-stage businesses are typically the owner (or owners) and friends and family members. Initially your company may look like this:

  • Owners/Founders - 50 percent equity each
  • Friend and family investors – each owner/founder surrenders 5 percent and 10 percent is given to friends and family (founders/co-owners now have 45 percent each)

At this point, you will typically have registered your company with stock to ensure you can actually issue stock to family or friends who invest in the company. As p
