In the context of stock compensation, a cashout occurs when stock grants issued to employees of an acquired company are not continued by the acquiring company. Your grants are then canceled, and you receive cash payments for either (1) the value of the exercise spread in stock options or stock appreciation rights or (2) the value of restricted stock or restricted stock units. A cashout is opposed to a rollover, in which the acquiring company converts the target company's stock grants into grants under its own stock plans. For more, see the section M&A: Impact elsewhere on this website.
