An Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is an often overlooked, yet powerful way to sell a business with numerous tax advantages, including the ability to operate as a non-taxable entity post-closing, sell tax-deferred and, ultimately, tax-free. Join us on Wednesday, May 19, at 9 AM CST (10 AM EST) for an analysis of the benefits of an ESOP exit strategy.



UHY is proud to continue our monthly Executive Briefings via webinar, bringing you current trends and valuable content to help in growing your business.

This month's topic is: ESOP: A Powerful Exit Strategy

An ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) is an often overlooked, yet powerful way to sell a business.  Tax advantages of an ESOP include the ability to operate as a non-taxable entity post-closing as well as sell tax-deferred and, ultimately, tax-free.  Join UHY as we discuss when ESOPs can result in the best sale outcome for your business.  

During this session, you will:

  • Obtain a high-level overview of how ESOPs work as a tool to sell a business
  • Explore situations where an ESOP might be more desirable than a traditional M&A process
  • Hear case studies of businesses that have structured ESOPs and what lessons they learned
