Vesting Deed


Vesting Deed

What is it?

A Vesting Deed is a document which sets out a scheme called ‘share vesting’. Individuals can earn shares in the company in reward for loyalty and meeting certain milestones or metrics. They essentially ‘earn’ shares in the company through loyalty or high performance. Typically shares are given to (or ‘vested’) in the employee or co-founder at pre-determined points in time. For example 25% of their shares after a year, the next 25% after two years, and so on. If the employee or co-founder leaves before the shares have been fully vested in them, the deed ensures that they must sell back the unvested shares at cost price. This is probably going to be a great deal for your company as it has most likely grown in value in this time.
