Employee Stock Ownership Plan: A Powerful 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.

May's topic was: 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. Thank you for joining us for a discussion of when ESOPs can result in the best sale outcome for your business.
