Case Study

Client Challenge

How to allow for the successful divestment of the owner to the management group in a manner that is:

  • Tax effective for the current owner and the management group
  • Provides a flexible structure for additional ownership opportunities
  • Provides  a mechanism for the future divesture/retirement of management group members

SB Solution

  • Conduct a comprehensive analysis of the business operations and entities to determine the valuation of the components and a tax analysis of the original structure
  • Collaborate with the current business owner and management group to determine their perspectives on succession and business value
  • Derive a tax efficient structure to allow for the buy-in of the management group and a 10 year buyout of the current owner
  • Integrate income splitting opportunities for the new management group to maximize their value creation
  • Provide guidance and management of the transition project from inception to final structure

Impact

  • Successful transition of the ownership to the management group
  • Maximize value creation to new owners allowing for significant asset accumulation
  • Retention of wealth on the buyout from the original owner
