About This Meeting

There are several ways to finance the repurchase obligation, including
"pay-as-you-go" funding, pre-funding, paying dividends/S corporation
distributions, corporate-owned life insurance, and incurring debt, i.e.,
releveraging the ESOP. The methods for handling repurchased shares, i.e.,
redeeming or recycling, will also be discussed. This webinar will cover the
mechanics as well as pros and cons of each approach.
