ESOPs as an Exit Planning Strategy


An ESOP, or employee stock ownership plan, provides a tax-advantaged solution that can meet a company’s needs in a variety of situations. ESOPs can be used to generate shareholder liquidity, create a market for the shares of a closely help company, increase employees’ productivity by making them beneficial owners, and support a tax-advantageous exit strategy for departing shareholder(s). In his upcoming presentation, “ESOPs as an Exit Planning Strategy,” SES ESOP Strategies’ Mark Russell will offer attendees a more thorough understanding of ESOPs as a business exit planning strategy, including the options, mechanics, benefits, risks, and ideal candidates.

Learning Objectives:

  • Some of the myths associated with ESOPs
  • The benefits and pitfalls of utilizing an ESOP
  • Some business succession planning considerations
  • What type of situations are best suited for an ESOP
