Contracts can also be automatically renewed for later periods without an explicit exercise option. In these cases, the contract usually stipulates that it is renewed for a certain number of times for a given period. Some employee stock option plans offer an Evergreen option in which additional shares are automatically included each year in the plan. These plans are used to attract and retain high-quality employees who have incentives to expand the business.
