ESOP
Click History
to edit Master title style
• Mr. South was looking for an alternative to selling the
company to a competitor. He had built a strong bond
with his employees and the community.
• After considerable research and thought, the ESOP
was formed in 1985 and owned 49% of the company.
• By 1989, 100% of the company was owned by the
ESOP.
• ESOP loan was repaid in 1995 and 100% of shares
were allocated to participants
• Very few changes have been made to the original plan
documents over the past 29 years.

Communicating
Value title style
Click to edit Master
• At what level of value should you
start? How technical should it be?
• Is there a good understanding of the
Plan?
• Do employees have insight into the
process?
• Myth: You do not need to share the
financial statements to discuss value
and value drivers.

Common
misconceptions
Click to
edit Master
title style
• Pricing from suppliers is applied evenly to similar
customers.
• Your expertise in purchasing in one cost category will
produce similar results in another.
• National pricing agreements are always better than
local or regional agreements with the same company.
• Loyalty to a supplier translates into best pricing and
service.
Expense
management
challenges
Click to

title
style
• Multiple suppliers and multiple order points.
• No internal benchmark data on purchases.
• Staff and management have limited time and resources
to address non-strategic costs.
• Employees with limited purchasing experience are
making buying decisions.
The
bottom
line
Click

Master title style
To get best market pricing:
•
Use benchmark data (your own, plus market data)
•
Hire cost-category expertise (each category has its
own pricing model, methodologies, jargon)
•
Put yourself in the shoes of your suppliers
•
Become a better customer to suppliers
•
Keep suppliers competing for your business
