Dear fellow Strangers,
I found myself in grey zone where I have a claim for "equity" that was never closely defined. We talk about a few percentages vested over a few years and now my first vesting period is over and I like to claim my "shares".
Now the point has came and the definition is not clear: I am supposed to get an ESOP, VSOP, TSOP or similar. Is there any further disadvantage to the SOPs besides the fact that they are not "real" equity aka do not hold share-holder rights? Meaning, will I face any financial downside for "just having" an ESOP even though the ESOP constitutes a considerable part of the total cake (more than five, less than ten %).
