Any info on call stock options purchased in the marketing (NOT employee/IS/NQSO etc).

Do you consult for individuals? How much?

Hello Sri,

Yes, you can gift call options without exercising them.

Whether it is better to exercise them depends on the facts and circumstances of your situation.

We do consult for individuals and prefer to discuss rates with you in person.

If you want help, call me at (408) 918-3161.

Good luck!
