Frequently asked questions
No but ESMG expects to own at least 60% of each business in the group. This allows us to ensure that we have sufficient control of the business to install the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS) and introduce reforms that will allow us to deliver on our mission and vision. Our expectation is that most companies joining ESMG will be 'under new ownership' with the founder exiting at the point the company joins.
Yes, we will acquire new companies that join ESMG either in whole or in part. This will be at a fair market value and take into account your last three years of business performance. We may or may not incorporate an earn out into the terms of the deal.
We expect that former owners of companies that join the group will not gain shares in ESMG. They may retain some shares in the joining company.
Possibly. We are looking to build the most trusted business services in the UK. Part of that involves having the right people in the right seats. Once we have established the niche for the new company, we will design an accountability chart for the organisation. Employees who are not right for any seat within the company might be offered a seat elsewhere in the group. Regardless, we will treat everyone well and do so consistent with our mission to make Everybody Smile More.
Yes. Joining ESMG is a commitment to building the most trusted brand in your industry. Your business will change as a result. We will probably narrow your focus by concentrating on the sort of work you do best, or we'll narrow the industries that you serve, or reduce the number of services you offer. Focussed companies delight their clients.
