Leave a lasting legacy
When business owners tell us what they want from their retirement, leaving a lasting legacy is front and center. Selling your business to your employees can accomplish this and more.
Retain good jobs: Employee ownership conversions retain jobs locally, and take care of the people who have worked hard to build the business.
Financial success: Owners want a fair sales price that can support their retirement. Selling to a broad base of employees can bring added tax advantages.
Ensure the mission lives on: Small businesses have a mission that matters. Whether it is a passion for quality or a triple bottom line, who better to carry it on, than the people who helped realize the mission?
Create positive community impact: Local businesses play a powerful role in their communities. Employee ownership keeps them anchored in place.
