Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs)
Benefit Capital's principals have more than 25 years of successful experience
in providing services in the Employee Stock Ownership Plan arena as
principals, consultants or advisors to over $5 billion worth of transactions
in diverse industries. ESOPs enable a unique class of buyers (the employees)
to buy a company and write off (deduct) not just the interest on any
loan but also the principal. ESOPs are the only buyer that is so favored
by the tax code and this provision has enabled hundreds of thousands
of employees to significantly increase their personal wealth.
Benefit Capital can provide turnkey ESOP services encompassing every
aspect of ESOP planning, design, formation, implementation and monitoring.
Benefit Capital can also provide equity financing for management and
employees and can bring in additional financing sources on the largest
transactions. The principals of Benefit Capital are co-authors and editors
of the definitive book on ESOPs, which is used as a reference by many
ESOP companies and professionals nationwide. Due to his expertise in
this area, one of Benefit Capital's principals was asked to testify
before Congress and also received an award for his contributions to
public pension policy. To see the range of ESOP services click
As the large baby-boom generation retires, owners of businesses are
finding that the smaller succeeding generation does not have enough
people to buy all the businesses being put up for sale. Many businesses
for sale are not finding buyers. In many cases, the employees are the
ideal built-in buyers.
With a properly structured ESOP, owners can sell their businesses and
defer all capital gains taxes (sometimes forever). Owners can save millions
to tens of millions of dollars in taxes. Employees can buy the business
and write off all interest and principal on the loans. Benefit Capital
is a top expert in the USA on ESOP-assisted buyouts and has successfully
completed more than $2 billion of these win-win transactions.
Solutions to Sarbanes-Oxley
Compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley rules and regulations costs many public
companies from $500,000 to more than $3 million per year. While large
public companies can afford these fees and expenses, they can be crippling
to smaller companies. In some companies, the costs of complying with
Sarbanes-Oxley uses up most or all of corporate profits. In other companies,
the costs of Sarbanes-Oxley has significantly reduced or eliminated
the advantages of being a publicly traded company. Benefit Capital has
a unique set of solutions to the Sarbanes-Oxley challenge. In many cases,
Benefit Capital can help smaller publicly traded companies escape the
burden of Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and thereby save $500,000 to more
than $3 million per year.
