Forecasting stock-based compensation is viewed as a black box in many companies. A plethora of inputs and assumptions go in, and some difficult-to-explain numbers come out. But as our research shows, the demand is only rising for precise forecasts and crisp variance explanations.

Stock compensation is filled with moving pieces that make it one of the most difficult elements of a company’s forecasting. Stock prices, performance award payouts, employee demographics, and tax benefits are a few of the more complicating features.

Join us as we highlight the value of cohesive forecasting while providing practical advice to prevent variances and explain those that are unavoidable. During this webcast, you’ll learn:

  • How other companies are forecasting equity compensation (and similar incentives)
  • Best practices for incorporating future hypothetical awards as well as hypothetical settlements to improve accuracy beyond just a few months
  • Techniques for interpreting variances between forecasts and actual results
  • Why it’s important to streamline forecasting across departments: Finance, Tax, Treasury, HR, and of course FP&A

With forecasts requiring more rigor every day and many 2019 budgets in flight, come learn what makes for best-in-class forecasting.
