Exit Strategy Alignment

 

● Two company founders planning a 5-year exit through strategic acquisition – need executive team pay plans to best position for the event.

A pair of company founders were planning a 5-year exit through strategic acquisition.  They needed pay plans for the executive team to best position for the event.  Ascend helped craft the set of wealth-sharing and retention mechanisms to support a successful deal.  Doing so enabled re-negotiation of a hodgepodge of executive employment agreements to drive one and all toward a lucrative exit.  Of interest: implementing new pay programs enabled renegotiation of agreements for employment, non-compete and non-disclosure to terms more favorable for the company and in full alignment with the exit strategy.
