Do you know what is Employee Share Option Scheme or so called ESOS? My good friend Calvyn Lee who is working in Motorola company told me about this scheme few months ago. Based on his information, i know that ESOS is a scheme where the company offer their employee to purchase their stock at a discounted rate compared to the market price.
It requires the employee to hold on to the stock for certain time period. If not mistaken, there’s a minimum holding time up to 2 months – 3 months. However, you can see your Return On Investment on the first day you buy as normally you will buy it at 10-15% discounted rate.
