Employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) transactions are becoming a more common exit strategy for business owners. ESOPs are now often seen as an equal and viable alternative to other types of M&A transactions due to a variety of factors, including increased acceptance by lenders, government support programs, tax advantages, and environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations. In this webinar, we will discuss factors in the current environment that favor ESOP transactions and what business owners should consider when looking to sell all or part of their business.
