Guest Speaker: Marcus Piquet, CPA of Ambrose Advisors and RPB CPAs speak on ESOPs and a guest business with real life experience in how an ESOP worked for their company.

This meeting will be great for manufacturers and businesses of all kinds. All are welcome.

Why are Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs) popular as an ownership succession vehicle?
How else can you:

  • Sell your business for full fair market value;
  • Potentially avoid capital gains tax on the sale;
  • Remain employed by – and in operational control of – the company post-sale;
  • Make your company an essentially tax-exempt cash generating machine; and
  • Build significant retirement wealth for the employees who helped get you where you are?

Hear, from a guest ESOP company about the costs, pros and cons and how ESOPs can be a powerful tool for success.
