In the U.S., we are entering a demographic phase that's been coined the "Silver Tsunami," representing the great wave of baby boomer business owner retirements.

However, from your small business client's perspective, selling their business may be very difficult, due to disinterested family members or not generating large enough revenue to attract a private equity buyer. As a small business advisor, exit planner or service provider, becoming more knowledgeable about employee ownership as a viable exit and succession planning strategy is a useful tool to add to your service portfolio.

We hope that this webinar will inspire and activate exit planners, business advisors, and service providers to build demand for employee ownership, while simultaneously increasing the supply of CEPAs and other exit professionals who can execute one or more pieces of the employee ownership service needs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify employee ownership types, features, benefits, advantages, and limitations.
  • Determine and recommend appropriate employee ownership options to clients when fit with a client's needs.
  • Analyze and engage additional employee ownership advisor partners when missing technical expertise.

  • Financial Advisors

    One of the critical ‘legs of the stool’ is personal financing planning. An owner must have a strong financial plan & contingency plan post-transition to enable them to thrive in the next act of the lives personally and financially. Exit planning brings this future mindset into the present. Exit is now.
