Aaron will be leading an expert-led roundtable discussion mid-day Thursday on the ESOP repurchase obligation. The roundtable provides a small group setting in which participants can ask Aaron questions and discuss issues related specifically to the ESOP repurchase obligation. He will explore the various assumptions involved in the forecasting process and how it impacts the long-term strategic plan, corporate governance, and ownership culture of an organization.
"The ESOP's future repurchase obligation can become a challenging and significant liability if it is not properly monitored and funded", says Juckett. In response to this criticial need to forecast the repurchase obligation, ESOP Partners developed the ESOP PROS (Proactive Repurchase Obligation Strategy)™ Process.
ESOP PROS™, an exclusive process to help companies develop a comprehensive strategy specifically designed to achieve long-term corporate and ESOP objectives. Aaron continues by saying, "ESOP PROS™ will help ESOP companies and fiduciaries ensure the long-term success of their ESOP while easing their fiduciary and administrative responsibilities".
