Having worked with executives of early-stage start-up companies, putting in place "Qualified Equity Grants" which may allow for taxes owed on an early exercise to be deferred overcoming illiquidity, is a welcome move. With one particular client, not having resources forced an ISO disqualification on a large portion and created risk to the client by their having to enter into an arrangement with a "lender" and missing-out on 100% of the upside potential appreciation of her company stock once it goes IPO. This is huge and I am interested in seeing how this will play out legislatively.
