Enter the current stock price of your company, the strike price of the options, the number of options you are entitled to, the number of years you are obtaining stock options for & an anticipated growth rate in the value of your company.
After you have completed your calculation click on [View Report] to see how your options change in value over time & then click on the [Print] button if you would like to print your results.
