Stock options generally have to be “exercised” before they can be transferred or traded. Some companies do allow for a “cashless exercise”, which acts as an IOU between the option holder and the purchaser. Nth Round’s equity platform supports both stock option exercises and cashless exercises, if desired.
We support a wide range of vesting schedules, which notify and deliver shares to the recipient at each vesting interval. We can help create these for you, or give you the tools to do it yourself.
Using Nth Round has no transaction fees.
Once the buyer and seller have agreed upon a price on the Nth Round platform, transactions happen in a matter of seconds.
