Giving shares to key staff

This is a common issue in businesses and these two methods are effective:

Clog shares

These shares will carry restrictions such as they can’t be sold for 5 years.  The benefit is that they can be substantially discounted when calculating their value.

Growth shares

These are a separate class of shares and the shareholders participate in the value of the company over a set hurdle.
