Aggregate Exercise Price

The exercise price of an option that the holder actually pays or is paid (depending on the nature of the option). The aggregate exercise price is calculated by taking the exercise price per unit and multiplying by the number of units specified in the contract. For example, if an option holder has a call for 1,000 shares of a stock for a $35 exercise price, the aggregate exercise price will be $35,000.
