Whether you’re a Baby Boomer seeking liquidity for your retirement or a younger business owner wanting tax incentives and increased benefits for employee engagement, an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) may be an option for you.

According to the National Center for Employee Ownership (NCEO), there are more than 6,600 ESOP-owned companies, not including the 3,800 profit-sharing plans and stock bonus plans that are mostly invested in company stock.
