Waypointers Episode 3:
Alternative agency exit options:
Employee Ownership Trusts and Management Buyouts
Agency exits can be tricky, particularly when you want to balance profitability with a socially conscious approach. In response, agencies are increasingly turning to employee ownership trusts (EOTs) which have more than doubled in number to almost 500 in the last 12 months, according to the Financial Times.
In this episode of Waypointers, Jamie Learmont and Jim Houghton from Waypoint Partners look at EOTs and MBOs as agency exit routes, de-mystifying what they mean and discussing the merits of these increasingly popular options.
