Net Settlement

A method of tax withholding for stock compensation in which the company settles the employee's tax obligation by issuing a specific number of shares net of those used for taxes. With restricted stock/RSUs, withholding for taxes occurs when shares are released at vesting. With stock options, withholding for taxes occurs when shares are acquired at exercise. See net share transaction and net issuance.
