Nearly every firm reaches a point where they have to ask, "Is the ESOP right for us?"

Join Bob Massengill to answer this question by taking a close look at the essential considerations of implementing a first ESOP transaction.

Using actual (redacted) examples of the different ways companies have used ESOPs, you'll explore partial-ESOPs, 100% buyouts, and ESOP + Management Buyouts. You'll also dive into:

  • Basic ESOP transaction structures and tax considerations
  • Overview of corporate governance in an ESOP company
  • Basic ESOP plan rules and employee payouts
  • Fiduciary considerations
  • Valuation requirements and basic methodologies

By the end of this 90-minute session, you'll have moved beyond common ESOP misunderstandings to be ready to determine if your business can afford the ESOP and if it satisfies your sellers' personal financial and business objections.
