Pilot Hill Advisors recently completed an ESOP advisory project for the owner of a specialty manufacturing company that sold 100% of their business to an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP).

The ESOP was chosen among other exit strategies as it simultaneously accomplished their goals of:  creating liquidity, maintaining its legacy, minimizing taxation, creating competitive advantage by eliminating corporate taxes and rewarding their employees. 

Consider whether your company may benefit more from paying taxes or using that capital to fund an internal buyout.
