Vonage Have you ever worked at a startup? If not, let me tell you how this really works.





Have you ever worked at a startup? If not, let me tell you how this really works. When a company starts up, the founder(s) usually pony up enough cash (or borrow it from friends) to hire a small initial team and keep the company going until they can raise some real money (generally tens to a couple hundred million from venture capital firms). The early employees in a company usually take a risk themselves (a lower salary in exchange for stock options). Those options are continually repriced based upon the value of the company. When the company starts, it has basically no value. Therefore, those early shares are priced ridiculously low (pennies per share). When an employee exercises (purchases) their options, they buy them at the price that it was set at when the options were awarded.

The venture capital firms also take a gamble. They fund the company in exchange for stock. They also buy their shares at a very low rate ($1 - $2 per share).

As the company grows, new employees also have the option to purchase shares, but their strike price tends to be higher and they generally get fewer shares than the really early employees (the strike price rises as the value of the company - generally set by a third party accounting firm - rises. Also, later employees are not taking as big of a risk because the company is already established). The early employees generally also get new options as part of their annual compensation package, but the price of those shares changes as the company grows (i.e. your first strike price may have been pennies per share, then a year later it was $1 per share, then 2 years later it might be $5 per share).

So yes, Citron probably has a few million of his own money tied up in the company, but he stands to make around $150 million when he sells. Not a bad deal. You didn't honestly think he paid $17/share for all of his shares, did you?

And yes, I agree that the 100 shares he did buy at $17 was purely symbolic. It's a stupid tradition - really more of a superstition than anything else.
