Glossary of Terms
ESOP: Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs) are tax-qualified retirement plans like 401k plans, pension plans and qualified profit-sharing plans. However, ESOPs have some unique features that allow them to be used as a vehicle to acquire private company stock from a business owner – to essentially become the buyer of a privately-held business.
