At the confluence of aging employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) and a slow or troubled economy remains a valuation nightmare.  The culprit: repurchase obligations.  On Thursday, August 26, attorney Jared Kaplan (McDermott Will & Emery) and appraiser Robert Gross (Prairie Capital Advisors) will discuss these new and emerging challenges in “ESOP Valuation: Repurchase Obligations”, a 100-minute webinar.  Join these experts to learn how repurchase obligations can obscure the viability of an ESOP plan or its operating company, what that means for your valuation, and how you can best tackle these obstacles.
