LEAD is known to have a more broad based ESOP approach with close to 20% of its employees owning ESOPs. It has in the past awarded generous performance ESOPs to reward employees for their results. The current ESOP liquidation plan is a significant opportunity given that LEAD’s valuation has doubled in the last nine months on the back of solid growth in its operating and financial metrics. 

LEAD Cofounder & CEO, Sumeet Mehta said, “Our success would not have been possible without the relentless efforts of our teams. I’m delighted that we are in a position to offer significant wealth creation opportunities to those who have joined us on our mission to provide an excellent education to every child. We have also included our Alumni in the Liquidation Plan because they continue to remain ambassadors of LEAD.”
