Posted 1:05 PM by

“They say your employees are your greatest asset. They may also be the key to your retirement.”

There are many angles and factors to consider when determining if an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is a company’s best option. Many leaders understand their employees might be their best succession plan, but they can lack the detailed knowledge to begin the process of determining if an ESOP is a feasible choice.    

While A Beginner's Guide to ESOPs was designed to only scratch the surface, Taking Stock of the ESOP Option explores the nine factors to consider when determining if an ESOP is the right choice, including:

  • The Right Valuation between a company’s Fair Market Value and Strategic Value.
  • The Capability of Your Management Team to consider whether the group is strong enough to lead the company.
  • Tapping Unused Debt Capacity to explore all the dynamics that play into financing an ESOP transaction.
