Companies with an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) are required to repurchase the stock of departing ESOP participants. This requirement means that all privately held ESOP companies have repurchase liability for company stock held in the ESOP. This liability can grow, and it is important companies are aware of and prepared for it. Regularly conducting repurchase studies is the best way to be prepared.
As part of FuturePlan by Ascensus, we now offer repurchase obligation studies for ESOPs. These forecasts provide the crucial information you need to make educated decisions for the future of your ESOP, including the size and timing of future repurchase obligations.
Our ESOP experts develop accurate, reasonable assumptions and interpretations of results, based on industry expertise, experience, and a deep understanding of your company’s goals and challenges.
We share our findings in an understandable, comprehensive report. Our experts will then answer any questions you have and help your management team and Board of Directors understand your company’s repurchase obligation issues and alternatives.
