Virtual stock options - also known as phantom stock options - are not options to buy stock at all. They are a promise to pay cash (or similar cash equivalent) at a future time. However, the amount of cash that will be paid is contingent - it is tied to the value of actual, real stock. Therefore, the cash value goes up or down based on the actual stock value.
If you would like to have more information on virtual stock options, please contact the Plug and Play Team.
