Intel (INTC) wants to bail out its employees holding “underwater” options with an exchange program that would give them fewer options at a lower exercise price.
The chipmaker also wants to freeze pay for some of its top executives.
Intel disclosed both plans in a proxy statement. Shareholders will have to approve both plans.
The idea behind the options exchange is to restore an incentive for employees to stay with the company.
