If you exercise, you get 2200 shares for $66,000.

If you take that same $66,000 and purchase shares on the open market, you will have 2274 shares.

Therefore, if you really feel the need to spend $66,000 on this stock, you would be better off purchasing the shares on the open market (in other words, this option is worthless). You could also choose to keep the $66,000 in your account for something else (or to purchase these shares at some lower level in the future).
