Structuring Family Business Is Very important

Questions of entry to the partnership became paramount. The company continued to operate day-to-day, but since the partnership required consensus, all major decisions were postponed e distributed model is the default position in most family-owned businesses. Parents usually want all their children to inherit equally. But there are challenges with this model, too. All members of the third generation could have become owners, while changes in the compensation policy would have rewarded those contributing to the success of the business

Family Business
Different
Type

Owner Operator
model

Perhaps the simplest model replicates the role of the founder – it keeps ownership control in one person (or couple). This model, which we call owner-operator, can be successful for many generations. Think of the British monarchy. Or Caterpillar Inc., whose corporate philosophy encourages distributors worldwide to have one person who works in the business with ownership control. For the owner/operator model to work, families need to find a means for deciding who gets to be the owner-successor that is perceived to be fair

Distributed Model

The owners here might have moved to a distributed model, for example, Shifting to this model might have allowed the brothers to reconcile their differences. All members of the third generation could have become owners, while changes in the compensation policy would have rewarded those contributing to the success of the business Parents usually want all their children to inherit equally and, besides, most assets are wrapped up in the company. Family members working in the business often disagree with those outside the business, differing, for example, on compensation and distribution policies.

“Four of the brothers invited their sons to enter the business, creating a dilemma for the brother with just one daughter. "

"Their partnership worked because the brothers contributed more or less equally to the business’s success. They drew the same salaries and profit distributions.”

Nested Model

Various family branches agree to own some assets jointly and others separately. This model – nested in the sense that smaller family ownership groups sit inside larger ones – is particularly attractive when conflict or differences in preferences interfere with decision-making on shared assets. For the nested model to work, the family runs the core business as a profit-making operation and distributes relatively large dividends to the branches. The nested model can effectively reduce tension among branches while keeping the family together as a whole.

Public model

: A final option is the public model, where at least a portion of the shares are publicly traded. Whether shares are publicly traded, or not, the business is run by professional managers, and the owners play a minimal role, usually limited to electing board members. This model works well when the business requires a significant infusion of outside capital, or when owners are too numerous, dispersed, or disinterested to be engaged actively in decision-making. The key question then becomes how the family owners can maintain control when they play such a limited role in making decisions about the business.
