Employee Stock Together | About Verizon – Verizon News

As Verizon creates the networks that move the world forward, we want every employee to feel that they are part of this employee movement and our Purpose. This is why we created Stock Together.
Stock Together is a broad-based equity award program that creates an opportunity for all of us to share in the success of Verizon and the value we help to create through a discretionary award of Verizon Restricted Stock Units (RSUs).

A Restricted Stock Unit or “RSU” is a hypothetical share of Verizon common stock. The RSU awards vest (or are earned) over a 3-year period, with 1/3 of the RSUs vesting on each of the first, second and third year anniversaries of the grant date. If you satisfy the vesting requirement for the award, you will receive a cash payment equal to the value of the RSUs that vest on each of the applicable vesting dates.
In order for you to vest (or earn) the RSUs, you must remain actively employed by the Company through each of the three vesting dates. If you leave Verizon before the last vesting date, the reason you leave will determine what happens to your unvested RSUs.
Dividend Equivalent Units (DEUs) are additional units that will be added to your RSU balance and are equivalent in value to the actual dividend payment made to Verizon shareholders. A DEU will be credited for each quarterly dividend that is declared by Verizon’s Board of Directors after the grant date. DEUs are only paid for awards that ultimately vest.

Eligible employees will receive an award of RSUs in a fixed dollar amount based on their job level, work location, and scheduled hours on the grant date. The award value for wireline associates is based on eligibility to participate in a Verizon pension plan.
The actual number of RSUs each employee will receive will be determined by dividing the employee’s fixed dollar amount by the closing price of a share of Verizon common stock on the grant date. For example, if your award amount is $2,000 and Verizon’s closing price on the grant date is $54.00, you will receive 38 RSUs – $2,000 / $54.00 = 37.037 units rounded up to the nearest whole unit = 38 RSUs. Eligible international employees will receive a cash bonus opportunity that will be based on and will track the value of RSUs.
The actual value of your payout depends upon the closing price of Verizon’s common stock on each of the vesting dates in year 1, year 2, and year 3, subject to any tax withholding obligations and legally required deductions.
Assumes a $39.40 grant price, 2% annual stock price increase over 3 years, and quarterly DEUs over 3 years

Vested RSUs will be paid in cash through your Fidelity brokerage account as soon as administratively possible after each of the vesting dates. For those employees that are in certain countries, the payment will be made through your local Payroll. The payments are subject to any tax withholding obligations.
