Software Product Details

We offer Excel-based models to generate valuations for stock option grants. The models take assumptions as inputs and with the push of a button, produce a valuation based on those assumptions using industry-standard methods. The model formulas are protected from tampering to prevent accidental deletion or modification.

We offer two models to determine option valuations, a modified Black-Scholes-Merton model which is included in the bundle and a Binomial Lattice model (purchased separately). Either model may be used to value employee stock options. The modified Black-Scholes-Merton model is best suited for companies seeking a simple, easy-to-use model. The Binomial model is more complex but generally produces a more precise valuation. Please see the Model Comparison sheet for more details.

We also offer the Volatility Tool to compute the volatility input to the models using historical stock data and the Forfeiture & Expected Life Tool to compute the forfeiture rate and expected life using historical stock option data. Finally, to help you compute the expense and manage your option grants, we provide the Management tool. These tools can be purchased together along with the Black-Scholes model for an attractive price in the ASC 718/FAS123r Bundle (see above).
