FASB proposes equity-based compensation.
The proposal would align U.S. rules on options with international standards, and follows similar moves by the International Accounting Standards Board and the Canadian Accounting Standards Board.
FASB plans to hold several public roundtable meetings with constituents to discuss issues related to the proposed statement. Those meetings are tentatively scheduled for the end of June 2004 and include meetings in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The comment period for the exposure draft ends June 30. For more information, visit www.fasb.org/draft/ed_intropg_share-based_payment.shtml.
