The NextGen Investor Plan (NIP)

The NextGen Investor Plan (NIP) is an equity sharing plan that creates a roadmap for your employees to become small, fractional owners in your company. SRG's proprietary equity buy-in plan will allow you to create an employee-owned company without the challenges or cost of an ESOP. 

Equity Appreciation Rights Plan

Our Equity Appreciation Rights Plan allows you to create a phantom equity sharing strategy designed to provide your employees/participants with a stake in the future appreciated value of your business. Using this plan you will be able to get your employees thinking and acting more like owners because they will have a stake in the growth. And, best of all, as a phantom equity plan, you have the flexibility to change the plan and you don't have to share voting rights or profits. 

Liquidation Rights Plan

SRG's Liquidation Rights Plan is a simple yet effective way to share a stake in the value of your company with your team. The plan can be set up as a phantom equity strategy, or use the equity in your LLC for example. The Liquidation Rights Plan is a popular strategy because of its simplicity, allowing advisors to share a portion of the value of the business with key team members without the need to give up profits or voting control. Combined with a valuation annually, this program will get your employees thinking and acting more like owners.
