Increasingly, owners of privately held businesses are considering the sale of their companies to an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) as a tax preferred liquidity alternative. Please join ACG, Greenberg Traurig and The McLean Group for a presentation highlighting the benefits of using an ESOP as an alternative exit transaction for owners of closely held businesses, including government contracting firms. Our panel will include legal and investment banking experts, as well as two business owners who successfully completed ESOP transactions.
