A Change of Control Agreement Saves the Day When Your Company Is In Play

Signing a change of control agreement
  • Significant equity of the target company to the executive
  • Liquidity for the executive on the levels of liquidity offered owners
  • Properly structured equity, tax favored for capital gain taxation
  • Proper severance in the event of early termination after the acquisition
  • Ability to trigger severance if the executive’s position or responsibilities are reduced
  • Proper structuring to avoid potential excise tax for parachute payments under IRC §280G.
