Exercise/Redemption Example
1,000 options granted at $10
Exercised at market price of $20
Tax withholding rate is 39%
 Trade Proceeds
• 1,000 shares x $20/share = $20,000
 Cost of Options (Company Proceeds)
• 1,000 shares x $10/share = $10,000
 Stock Option Benefit (Trade Proceeds – Cost of Options)
• $20,000 - $10,000 = $10,000
 Participant Proceeds*
• $10,000 – (39%) = $10,000 - $3,900 = $6,100
* Less applicable transaction, banking fees, and brokerage commission

Exercise Types
Type 1 - Exercise and sell all shares on the market
– An optionee can take the options, convert them to stock and sell all of the
stock immediately. The Stock Options and Awards module facilitates a
"cashless exercise" where optionees convert their options into stock without
having to put up personal funds. Payment to the company is made upon the
settlement of the sale proceeds.
 Type 1.5 - Exercise options, sell just enough shares to pay for the options
and hold the remaining shares
– An optionee can convert their options to stock, sell a portion of the stock and
hold the remainder to sell at a later date. The Stock Options and Awards
module facilitates a "cashless exercise" where optionees convert the
necessary amount of options into stock without having to put up personal
funds. The optionee will then be provided a share certificate for the remaining
shares.
 Type 2 - Exercise options and hold the stock
– An optionee can convert the options to stock, and hold the stock. This is not a
cashless exercise. The optionee must provide payment for the stock. Solium
must receive a certified cheque from the optionee within three business days
of the exercise and hold submission to proceed with the exercise and the
production of a share certificate to the optionee.
