Front-Loaded Vesting

A vesting schedule of an equity award in which more of the grant vests in the early stages than in the later stages (i.e. not evenly throughout).

Example: A restricted stock grant vests 33% of the stock per year for the first two years, 22% in the third year, and 12% in the fourth.

Compare this to backend-loaded vesting, in which more of the grant vests in the later stages of the vesting schedule than in the early stages.
