Definition of entity-purchase agreement

entity-purchase agreement
1. A financial plan used by businesses with more than one owner where the company takes out a life insurance policy for each owner equalling the owner's stake in the business. If one of the owners dies, an entity-purchase agreement guarantees that the company will continue to run, while allowing the surviving owners to buy out the deceased owner's share of the business and evade any out-of-pocket expenses related to the deceased owner's passing.
