Stock Options for Former P&G Managers

Stock Options for Former P&G Managers

If you have retired or separated from P&G, you may have questions about the specifics of managing your stock options. Information for former P&G managers is archived here for your convenience.

As the Holiday Season approaches, please note that all stock option exercises to be executed in calendar year 2018 must be submitted no later than 2:30 p.m. EST (Cincinnati time) on Friday, December 21, 2018.

These rules apply to all stock options, including those granted pursuant to the Key Manager and STAR programs, and all Recognition Shares grants.

If you have placed a "Limit Order", there is no guarantee that your options will be exercised and your shares sold prior to the end of 2018. Only those limit orders that execute by close of market on Friday, December 21, 2018 will be completed during calendar year 2018 (i.e., if a limit price is reached between December 24, 2018 through December 31, 2018, it will not execute in 2018).

To confirm, we will not be able to process any stock option exercise requests submitted after 2:30 p.m. EST December 21, 2018 through January 1, 2019. Any requests submitted on these days will be processed on January 2, 2019.

For U.S. Payroll purposes, exercises executed on or before 2:30 p.m. EST, December 21, 2018 will be reported and taxed in the U.S. as 2018 income. Orders received after this time will not be processed until January 2, 2019; and, therefore, reported and taxed in the U.S. as 2019 income.

All other countries, for any December exercises, you should contact the Employee Care Team at to determine in which calendar year this income will be reported.

Please contact Stock Plan Administration at 513-983-5125 or with any questions.
