Case Study : Employee Stock Ownership Plan

Owner of a well established manufacturing company wanted to sell his company and eventually retire.

  1. Sale of company to an outside buyer would have resulted in large tax liability due to low tax basis of assets and C-Corp status. The result would have been an unsatisfactory financial outcome after years of building a successful company.
  2. Evaluated Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) structure for benefits as well as risks. The financial benefits to the owner were substantial with the sale of the company to the ESOP.
  3. Coordinated all aspects of structuring the transaction with legal, accounting, investment and independent valuation professionals. This allowed the Owner/President to continue to focus on the strategic and operational aspects of the business.
  4. Obtained bank financing for the ESOP buyout during a very difficult credit environment ("2008 Credit Crunch").
  5. Negotiated purchase and financing documents.
