ESOP Advisory

As a leading ESOP advisor, Prairie understands the complex regulatory, tax and financial issues that must be considered across the full spectrum of ESOP advisory engagements.

Our ESOP Capabilities

Fairness Opinions Prairie has a long history assisting ESOP fiduciaries on valuation, transaction structuring, plan design and negotiations during the ESOP transaction process. ESOP fiduciaries must ensure the procedures assumed during a transaction are well-conceived and properly documented. Prairie’s deep ESOP and transaction expertise allows us to effectively analyze a potential sale in its entirety and communicate the results to the ESOP fiduciary for a prudent investment decision. ESOP Sustainability ESOP policy decisions are often established when there is not a clear understanding of how such decisions will impact the business as it matures. Prairie’s sustainability study integrates anticipated repurchase obligation and long-term valuation analysis to create a decision-making tool that effectively gauges the impact of various ESOP policy decisions. Capital Markets Prairie assists clients in sourcing and securing individualized financing packages to consummate acquisitions, fund growth opportunities, provide liquidity for shareholders or refinance existing debt obligations. Our goal is to identify the appropriate structure to meet your strategic needs. We will leverage our extensive relationships to conduct a competitive process, helping our clients achieve the best combination of pricing and terms.
