Cashless exercise

A method of converting options into stock that requires no initial 

Cash

 payment to 

Cover

 the strike price. Essentially, a 

Broker

 briefly loans enough 

Money

 to 

Exercise

 the options, and a portion of the stock is sold immediately after 

Exercise

 in 

Order

 to repay the broker. In this respect it is essentially 

Buying on margin

. The 

Broker

 is willing to enter this arrangement when that 

Broker

 feels that the 

Option

 holder will honor his/her 

Commitment

 and quickly 

Sell

 his/her stocks to 

Settle

 the 

Debt

 to the broker.
