Creating an ESOP in the Time of a Pandemic

Date:Oct. 29, 2020 
Time:12:00-1:00 p.m. EDT 

Employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) have long been a compelling succession planning technique. In light of the current pandemic, fewer ESOP transactions have closed this year due largely to uncertainty involving business valuations. Nonetheless, as markets rebound and stabilize and businesses regain their footing, ESOPs are becoming more and more viable.

In this webinar conversation, Andy Manchir of Katz, Sapper & Miller's ESOP Services Group and Michael Paton of Barnes & Thornburg will cover:

  • What is an ESOP?
  • Why and when an ESOP makes sense
  • Benefits of an ESOP over other exit and succession planning options
  • How to create, fund, and operate an ESOP
  • The mechanics of an ESOP transaction
  • The tax benefits of an ESOP
