Input Data Used for Service 1
Inputs that are used to make fair value calculations are shown below with brief explanations for your convenience. The input data is broken into two parts - data that you provide and data that we provide (unless you enter special instructions that you would like to provide some or all of that data also).
Data that You Provide.
- Company Name
- Company Stock Symbol
- Strike Price - This is the price at which your options can be exercised. It is also called the Grant Price. This is the price that you effectively pay for the stock when you exercise the options.
- Expiration Date - The expiration date is the date at which your options expire.
- Number of Shares - The number of shares is how many shares of stock your options control.

Data that We Enter (unless you give us special instructions to use data that you specify)
- Valuation Date - The valuation date is the date for which you are determining the fair value for the option. Normally this is the current date.
- Interest Rate - The interest rate used for Fair Value pricing of an option is the risk-free rate. The rate for a time deposit that is maturing close to the expiration date of the option is generally used.
- Asset Price - This is the price of your company stock on the valuation date.
- Volatility - The volatility of your company stock provides a measure of the random variability or dispersion of price data over time, usually quoted as annual standard deviation of an asset's price. We normally use historical volatility data of your company stock price for this input. If you would prefer to provide this input, we will gladly use your input.
