Dear SOS Team Members, Clients and Industry Partners:
SOS Consultant Corner: Crafting Clear Communications - Even If You're the Newbie on the Team
It is your first day at a company and you are ready to tackle whatever challenges come your way. You know the administration software, the type of equity the company utilizes and how it works, and have even been proactive by reading news releases, the sections of the proxy that may be relevant to your duties and stock plan documents on the SEC website. You feel pretty good about where you stand before even stepping foot into the work site.
Because you don't have any excuses left. Join the SOS Team.

Periodically, SOS will ask for issuing companies' participation in a market research survey to enhance our understanding of current practices and trends in the industry and to provide our clients insight into the practices of other issuing firms. Our surveys are brief, taking no more than 5 to 10 minutes to complete.
Please note that only issuing companies, not vendors or consultants, should complete the survey and are eligible for the drawing. Thank you for your cooperation!

Stock Splits: Easy Peasy... Not So Fast...
Whether it's a split or a reverse split, stock splits should be easy, right? Turns out that these transactions that look easy at the outset really aren't. Our panelists have worked on a number of splits over the past few years and will share their key lessons and experiences. Even if your company doesn't have a split planned, you should attend this session and file this information away in your equity compensation toolbox.
