ButcherJoseph & Co. advised Entech Sales and Service, Inc. (“Entech” or the “Company”) on the optimization and recapitalization of the Company’s ownership structure, which includes an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (“ESOP”). Based in Dallas, Entech has more than 375 dedicated employees who provide services to commercial and industrial buildings in several key markets within the state of Texas. The transaction officially closed on June 1, 2018.
Nick Kollasch – Vice President of Entech, explained, “Maintaining employee ownership is very important to our culture. As we matured in our life cycle as an ESOP-owned Company, we recognized that there was an opportunity to realign and refresh our ownership structure to better match Entech’s strategic plans moving forward. Creating new ownership options and meaningful incentives for our future leaders will ensure that Entech remains a great place to work, and will further foster the entrepreneurial spirit through which all of our customers and key relationships will benefit.”
ButcherJoseph Managing Director Jeff Buettner expressed, “It was an honor to craft an innovative and expansive form of employee ownership for Entech. Quite often, mature ESOP companies find that the status quo model of employee ownership doesn’t always align with new growth initiatives, nor does it offer future employees and leaders worthwhile incentives. After extensive analysis, our team designed a broader form of employee ownership that will provide both durability and flexibility to support Entech’s vision moving forward.”
