Black-Scholes model
A financial option pricing model to calculate the expected value of share-based payments using variables such as dividend yield, exercise period, exercise price, market price, risk-free rate of return and share price volatility. The model assumes that executive options can only be exercised at one point in time, and therefore may not be the most accurate estimate of the expected value of executive options.
