TONY WILLIS, FOUNDER - RENAISSANCE LEADERSHIP

“When I started to examine the options to realise value for my business, it became clear that the traditional exit route of a sale to a competitor or a financial buyer would not achieve my goals. Since becoming employee owned the business has continued to thrive. I am very glad I used RVE Corporate Finance, who gave excellent advice, structured the transaction very effectively, and were extremely professional and efficient at managing the whole process.”

EMPLOYEE OWNERSHIP

What is Employee Ownership?

  • A forward thinking alternative to traditional forms of trade sale exit
  • Owner strategy that plans future involvement to suit personal needs
  • Transforms employees from 'wage-earners' into 'stakeholders'
  • A tax-efficient route for commercial and long lasting benefits

Employee Ownership, with full involvement of the team that helped you build the business, will help you realise a good company price whilst ensuring the business continues to grow and prosper for the sake of employees and clients. You can even phase out your involvement to suit your personal circumstances, remaining involved for a time and in a capacity that makes sense for all involved.
