Today I’m talking about ESOPs (or Employee Stock Ownership Plans) with Dave Diehl, CFA. Dave is the CEO of Prairie Capital Advisors (one of the leading ESOP specialists in the country), based out of Chicago. Prairie Capital Advisors is unique because of their range of expertise, which covers both ESOPs as well as selling to a private equity firm. They really have the best interest of the client in mind. Dave talks about the basics of ESOPs in layman’s terms so everyone can understand the benefits of this type of exit process.
