Do Employee Share Ownership Plans provide the best outcomes for a successful exit?

An Employee Share Ownership Plan (ESOP) is a mechanism for an employee to earn a share in the company they work for. This leads to a high-performing business and the opportunity for a successful exit for the owner.

This study seeks to identify and examine the effect of any potential barriers that might exist to restrict or prohibit the use of ESOPs and answer the following questions:

  • What are the succession methods currently being employed in Australian businesses?
  • Which exit options are preferred and what motivating factors are driving this choice?
  • What is preventing the take up of ESOPs as an exit option for Australian Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) business owners?
