In its February 2014 issue, The M&A Lawyer published an article co-authored by Matthew Friestedt titled “Roadmap to Providing Appropriate Incentives to Employees When Your Company Is Going to Be Sold.” The article explored whether a company might consider introducing an additional incentive opportunity or an additional retention arrangement to ensure that its employees continue to focus on the business when the company is sold. “Companies need to take into account many factors to develop a program that achieves its interrelated goals of getting the highest price for the company, delivering an intact company to the buyer and retaining the most essential employees,” the article concluded.
