Case Study: Waterfall Solutions

Posted by admin at 15:51 on 13 Feb 2017


In 2005, RM2 designed and implemented an Enterprise Management Incentive (EMI) plan for Waterfall Solutions (Waterfall) to match its objectives of retaining, incentivising and motivating key members of staff. The company is a provider of cutting edge technology for the defence, homeland security and commercial sectors around the world.

In October 2010, Waterfall was acquired by Digital Barriers Plc. The sale triggered the exercise of the participants' EMI share options resulting in significant financial gains for those involved.

The success of Waterfall's EMI plan is an excellent illustration of how a share option plan can be implemented for the real benefit of a company's employees and ultimately its shareholders.

Dr Moira Smith, Managing Director of Waterfall, says "Many thanks to you for your professional help and support through the process. It's great to see the EMI scheme come through and deliver financial rewards to key staff."
