vest fleece

Definition

The practice of company executives accelerating the vesture of their own stock options, in order to shorten the waiting period before they can convert their options into stock shares. This practice, generally deemed unethical, reduces overall shareholder value and the value of unvested stock options by increasing the number of issued shares.
