An Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) may be used by private business owners/shareholders to facilitate exit and succession planning. Business owners use this option to maximize personal wealth and liquidity through taking their money off the table while continuing to control, operate, and earn from their company into the future.
Companies that install ESOPs over time generate wealth for all their employees through a tax advantaged employee benefit program. This model is considered to be a best practice maximizing selling shareholder wealth while aligning business interests with those of employees.
Tenor Capital Partners specializes in this concept. We are transaction specialists exclusively representing private business owners/shareholders in these restructurings.
