Sample Disclosure – Accounting Policy Of Employee Equity Compensation Benefits (ESOS) (24 November 2009)


The Employees’ Share Option Schemes (“ESOSs”) of the Company and a subsidiary grant the Group’s eligible employees options to subscribe for shares in the Company and the subsidiary at pre-determined subscription prices. These equity compensation benefits are recognised as an expense with a corresponding increase in equity over the vesting period as share option reserve. The total amount to be recognised is determined by reference to the fair value of the share options at grant date and the estimated number of share options expected to vest on vesting date.
