Executive Compensation in a Pre-IPO Company

A week ago, on October 1, 2019, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on “Executive Compensation in a Pre-IPO Company.”   The magazine advised me that I can use “Featured in the CEOWORLD magazine” and the CEOWORLD “Logo” on my website.

This was my 24th article published in CEOWORLD. Earlier this year, the editor advised that I can add CEOWORLD magazine in my LinkedIn profile’s “Experience Section” as an “Opinion Columnist.” and authority in the field.  See https://ceoworld.biz/author/robert-adelson/

This article, my most recent, published October 1, is designed for C-level and senior executives in private companies that are planning for or soon contemplate an initial public offering.  The article discusses executive compensation in public companies, then executive compensation in private companies and the transition from a private company to a public company.

The article offers further tips to the executive facing and negotiating that transition including

  • What should you do to protect your interests?
  • How much should you be paid?
  • How do you structure your equity compensation as the value of the stock increases?
  •  What other equity-related terms to seek before the IPO?

The article concludes with discussion of issues to consider post-IPO.

Negotiating Your COO Employment Agreement

A week ago, on May 28, 2019, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on “Negotiating Your COO Employment Agreement” The magazine advised me that I can use “Featured in the CEOWOLRD magazine” and the CEOWORLD “Logo” on my website. 

This article is designed for Chief Operating Officers (COOs) hired to oversee all areas of company operations, including production, marketing and sales, and research and development.  My article also recognizes that a COO can also be hired for further specific missions including any of the following:

  • To fill a specific need in an operational area or line of business, e.g. to turnaround a failing operation,
  • To expand company operations into a new market,
  • To fill a gap in the CEO’s knowledge, expertise, skills, management style or experience, and thus complement the CEO,
  • To meet the company need for succession planning when the CEO is about to retire where the Board wants to hire a COO to prepare him or her to be the successor CEO
  • Conversely, to hire the COO to mentor a first-time founder-CEO where  the COO would likely be an industry veteran with wisdom and a business relationship network who can develop both the CEO and assist the scale up of the company to the next level or to achieve a liquidity event, or
  • To hire the COO to mentor an inexperienced family-member CEO to aid that family member to grow into the job and responsibilities expected of him or her.

My article discusses delineation of your duties, responsibilities, authority and reporting and including in those special circumstances listed above.  My article also offers suggestions for your COO offer letter or employment contract to include key executive employment terms on which you rely to take the job.

My article next discusses what to seek in getting the right COO Executive Compensation Package, and concludes with a discussion of severance rights to enable you to protect the terms of your bargain reached with the company.
