INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Savior Plan'

After a savior plan is put into place, one could say that the company is "employee-owned".
This type of plan can fail because of high borrowing costs, which may not be paid back quickly enough to obtain a return on the investment. Also, savior plans do not guarantee that the company will begin to operate efficienctly after the buyout.
