The shares vest over four years. The option is granted on the assumption that the share price will rise, which it has been doing. Salesforce shares are up more than 55 percent this year. In 2011 Benioff’s last options grant was for 350,000 shares at a price of $108.25. That grant has since increased in value by more than $17 million. Of course, that’s in addition to the 10 million shares Benioff already owns beneficially as of Nov. 27, according to the filing, worth nearly $1.6 billion. The filing also says that Benioff is planning to sell off 412,500 shares in a three-day spree beginning on Dec. 26.
