  • What kinds of incentive plan are most commonly offered and to whom?
  • What kinds of share option plan can be offered?
  • Can awards be made subject to performance criteria, vesting schedules and forfeiture?
  • Are there any prospectus or securities law requirements that apply to the operation of incentive plans?
