Fourteenth Global Employee Equity Forum
February 7, 2013
The World Centre for Employee Ownership
Harvey M. Katz presented at the 2013 DAVOS Switzerland on employee ownership plans. His presentation discussed how ESOPs are an often overlooked exit strategy for closely held US businesses, as they benefit both the selling shareholders and the employees. He also discussed US tax laws providing incentives and companies that utilize ESOP technique and how ESOP owned companies can legally operate as tax exempt companies for the benefit of ESOP participants.
