Hi Ann,
Thank you for this decent article. I'm an expat auditor in PwC San Jose, originally from PwC Seoul Korea. While auditing a client, I faced the terminology 'focal', and couldn't understand what it meant (absolutely far-away from the dictionary meaning). Thanks to this article I Googled, now I can understand it clearly. By the way, is it common to grant stock options as part of 'focal'? It would require complex consideration on the company's long-run performance and capital structure.
