Abstract

(VF)Ces dernières années, les stock-options ont été au cœur de scandales financiers dans plusieurs pays qui ont entraîné une forte demande de transparence, en particulier sur ce mode de rémunération destiné aux dirigeants. L’objectif de cet article est de présenter, dans une première partie, les modalités de comptabilisation des stock-options selon la norme européenne IFRS 2 et la norme américaine FAS 123. La seconde partie est consacrée aux incidences et à une analyse critique de la comptabilisation des stock-options, notamment au regard de l’exigence de comptabilisation de ce mécanisme incitatif à sa juste valeur. (VA) In many countries, executive stock options (ESOs) have been subject to financial scandals during these last years, that encountered for a deep need of transparency, particularly about this compensation device for managers. The aim of this paper is to present, in a first part, the ways of expensing ESOs in through the European IRFS 2 and the American FAS 123 standards. The second part analyses ESOs accounting and its consequences, namely regarding the requirements about measuring this incentive mechanism at its fair value.
