ABT, INC. EMPLOYEE STOCK OWNERSHIP PLAN is a DEFINED CONTRIBUTION PLAN. This type of Plan generally establishes an account for each individual Participant where a defined amount is being contributed by the Participant, the employer or both. Some examples of this type of plan are 401(k), 401(a), Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), Savings Plans and Profit-Sharing Plans.

With this type of plan, the Alternate Payee is typically awarded a portion of the Participant's account balance as of a specific date, expressed as either a percentage, or as a specific dollar amount, by way of a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO). The Plan will establish a separate account for the Alternate Payee and will usually allow the Alternate Payee the opportunity to utilize investment opportunities that are available for other participants in the Plan. This type of plan generally affords an Alternate Payee the ability to receive an immediate lump sum distribution (or withdrawal) upon approval of a QDRO. The Alternate Payee may also choose to transfer the awarded funds to another tax qualified account of his/her choice – for example, to an Individual Retirement Account (IRA). It is important for an Alternate Payee to consult with a tax professional before making any transfers or withdrawals, in order to be fully informed as to any potential tax consequences arising from either the timing or nature of the transfer or withdrawal.

Features of the ABT, INC. EMPLOYEE STOCK OWNERSHIP PLAN may include:

  • This is a “Stock Bonus” Plan, where the employer contributes company stock to an employee’s account. Contributions to a stock bonus plan are discretionary.

  • This is an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), where the sponsoring company contributes newly issued stock, existing treasury stock, or cash to the Plan, which is then used to purchase shares from the selling shareholder
