What is a Restricted Stock Unit?
A Restricted Stock Unit (RSU) refers to a grant of a value equal to an amount of a company’s common stock. The RSU is typically granted to a new or valuable employee as an incentive for employment or to meet specified performance goals. In the case of a new employee, the RSU plan is commonly included as part of the employee’s initial compensation package. RSUs are very popular today with startups and technology companies seeking to hire and retain highly skilled and talented employees.
How Restricted Stock Units Work
With an RSU plan, the company offers the employee an economic interest in the company stated as a specific number of shares of company stock.

What Are Tag Along Rights?
Tag along rights or "co-sale rights" are legal agreements that guarantee minority stakeholders the right to sell their shares in the company at the same time and under the same conditions as the majority stakeholder. These rights are often used when companies are founded and capitalized because it protects investors and encourages them to buy the company's stock at an early stage. This is especially true for most angel investors, who won't even think of joining unless there are tag along rights.
Why Are Tag Along Rights Important?
Tag along rights protect minority stakeholders by giving them a certain amount of control over their own investments. If a principal stakeholder of the company liquidates its share, smaller investors won't get a bad deal. In simple words: If Investor A is selling their interest in the company, Investor B gets to sell their interest on the same terms and conditions.
