Enterprise Management Incentives (EMI) Schemes

EMI schemes can motivate and retain members of staff, who are key to the long term success of a business.

We assist our clients in designing and implementing the right scheme for their circumstances.

Shares can be issued in the form of share options. Share options delay the transfer of equity, until certain criteria such as the sale of the business are met.

This avoids the risk of minority shareholders being created and these shareholders then leaving employment before the majority shareholders’ goals have been attained.

However, even this risk can be reduced by the alternative route of employee shares, which are returned to the company at the end of the holder’s employment.
