About This Meeting

Most ESOPs purchase shares from owners in more than one transaction. Whether your company is planning such a transaction, or just starting an ESOP that will be done in stages, this Webinar will help you understand the key legal, valuation, and financial issues involved. Topics will include seller versus bank financing, whether the ESOP can pay for control in multi-stage transactions, how to deal with the impact of debt on the account value of existing employees after a second transaction, and how to help employees understand the implications of a second transaction.

You will learn:
