Robinhood’s Poor Performance
Robinhood’s founders, Vlad Tenev and Baiju Bhatt, decided to surrender an $806 million bonus they were set to receive from market-based restricted stock units distributed ahead of the company’s IPO in 2021. The payout was structured to better align the founders with the new investors buying into the company at $38 apiece. For as long as the stock’s average price failed to hit $120 for 60 consecutive days, the duo wouldn’t get a penny of their award. Above that level, the sum they could claim when it paid out after eight years would mount. With a sustained average price of $300, Tenev and Bhatt would claim shares equivalent to a mind-boggling $10 billion. However, the company’s market value has struggled as the retail boom in stock and cryptocurrency trading has flagged, with shares bobbing around $10 for almost a year. The company’s monthly active users are falling, and revenue from interest income generated by its holdings of cash and investments, not from customer activity. The article highlights the quirks and doublespeak surrounding stock-based compensation, and the drawbacks of pegging executives’ awards to share prices, which create the false impression that the targets are within their control and can encourage bosses to take more risk.
