Webinar length:  60 min.

Business owners seeking to transition ownership of their companies were thrown a curveball when the COVID-19 pandemic brought most merger and acquisition transactions to a screeching halt. With so much uncertainty in the marketplace, the traditional M&A market may not fully recover for years, yet business owners still need viable ownership transition options. Now more than ever, the implementation of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) could be a creative alternative to transition ownership of a company.

GBQ’s business valuation team describes ways in which an ESOP remains a viable ownership transition alternative and the advantages to ESOPs for all parties, including:

  • How an ESOP works and an overview of an ESOP transaction
  • Advantages of ESOP ownership
  • Good candidates for ESOP ownership
  • Why an ESOP is an especially attractive alternative in this COVID-19 environment
  • Key steps to implementing an ESOP
*To be eligible for CPE credit you must have attended the live session of the webinar and have completed and submitted the required documentation.
