Stock Appreciation Right

A bonus that an employer pays an employee equal to the price appreciation on the company's stock over a given period of time. This is much like an employee stock option. The primary difference is that the employee does not have to actually buy stock; that is, he/she does not have to pay anything. Rather, the employee simply receives the cash or stock bonus in the specified amount.
