Who Should Own Your Business After You?
This booklet from the NCEO, helps business owners evaluate employee ownership. It shows how selling to your employees can mean flexibility and fair market value for you, security for your workforce and community, and the deep satisfaction of knowing the people who will be responsible for your company’s success after you have left.
“Exiting over time allowed me to continue steering the ship through the transition. What’s more, as the share value grew, so did the value of my retirement, as both an ESOP participant and as the majority owner. Most of all, I’m proud to say that our company is still a thriving and important part of the community, one that is owned by all the people who continue to make it great.”
– Roger Ryberg, Former Owner and CEO, Windings
“The community and our employee-owners know these jobs aren’t going anywhere. And the proof is in the pudding—in the first year since the sale, our stock price is up 488%.”
– Shawn Burcham, Founder and President, PFSbrands
