Buyouts in closely held companies are commonly triggered in buy/sell agreements. An owner may voluntarily elect to be bought out or may, by virtue of death, disability or other triggering events, involuntarily trigger a buyout – or be forced out. These buyouts depend the valuation of the buyout, which is often difficult to ascertain because the market is illiquid and comparable valuations scarce. Buyouts also come in many different methods, from redemptions to third-party purchases. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the triggers of buyouts in closely held companies, methods of buyouts, ascertaining valuation, and finance.
