The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit is considering the district court’s decision in Fishoff v. Coty Inc., which held that the Coty Board’s broad discretion under its Long Term Incentive Compensation Plan (LTIP) did not include attributing two different fair market values to its stock for the same day.

Michael Fishoff, the former Chief Financial Officer of Coty Inc., a privately held corporation, was a participant in the company’s LTIP.
