Reliance Capital plans Rs 100-cr ESOP for senior employees

Reliance Capital, the financial services company of the Anil Ambani group, has decided to dole out stock options worth Rs 100 crore to senior employees, said a person privy to the development.

The Reliance Capital board approved the employee stock option plan on Tuesday. The plan would cover nearly 500 employees. The employee stock option plan is viewed as an attractive retention strategy and also to be utilised to attract new talent to the company. It will also be an integral part of aggregate compensation for top management team, the same person said, requesting anonymity.

Reliance Capital will issue 12 lakh shares under the plan to employees working with parent company and all major businesses. Shares approved for ESOP in the first tranche will represent nearly 0.5% of the company’s equity. The shareholders of the company have recently approved a proposal to offer up to 5% of shares through ESOP over the next few years. The Reliance Capital stock closed flat Rs 911.85 on BSE.
