A privately owned tech start up, had a five year plan to grow the business value in advance of a sale, the shareholders identified several key employees whose retention would be key to the success.
The company was valued at £4m, but the desired exit price was £20m. In order to achieve this growth, the shareholders identified several key employees whose retention would be key to the success. Strategy.Tax provided assistance with a management incentives solution in order to help motivate and retain the key employees. The business considered offering bonuses to key employees based on achieving certain levels of growth, however as they wished to retain cash for future growth they were keen to explore more cost efficient options.
Our experienced team designed an EMI share scheme that operated as a valuable incentive and retention tool for their key employees.
We guided the company through every step of the process with face to face or virtual meetings so that we could get to know the business and its growth strategy.
Our streamlined process, with a technology enabled solution, ensures efficiency of time, administration and most importantly cost!
