Small Business ownership changes, equity investments, stock options, phantom stock, asset sales and succession planning may be key to the viability and continuity of your business but can actually compromise your SDVOSB, WOSB, 8(a), and other certifications if not done right. Whether you are looking for an equity investment in your firm, or want to do succession planning, or you may be looking to acquire a business to increase your service offerings, you need to start the planning process now. Planning includes a myriad of legal issues and practical considerations in changes to ownership and how the SBA’s rules on ownership, control and affiliation rules come into play. 

Discuss key ownership change and control issues that must be addressed by small business to stay compliance with the SBA regulations. Discussion topics will include issues in granting stock options, phantom stock alternatives, the new SBA All Small Business Mentor Protégé Equity Investment issues that arise, how to finance the sale, Stock Purchase and Shareholder Agreement and Operating Agreement Dos and Don’ts, Real Examples of Lessons Learned by Companies that did not understand the rules when making ownership changes, Small Business Investment Companies (SBIC) and how to protect your business when you invite new investors to the table. Last, whether it’s a merger, acquisition, or present stock transfers for succession planning, it is crucial to understand what changes will trigger a possible de-certification or removal of certification eligibility. This presentation is packed with information and questions are encouraged.
