Setpoint Employees Offered Stock Purchase

Ogden, Utah, May 2009 – Setpoint Systems, Inc., an open book company, has taken the open book philosophy to the next step.  Setpoint has recently offered a significant stake in the company to all of its employees in a stock purchase made possible by Joe VanDenBerghe, a co-founder, selling his shares.

“We have always believed in open book management, it creates employees who have a psychic ownership in the company.  Even though our employees didn’t own stock they acted like they did because they understood the numbers” says Joe Knight, the CFO at Setpoint.  “Now with the stock purchase we have changed this psychic ownership into actual ownership for several employees in the company.”

Brad Angus, CEO said “This is a natural next step in our open book philosophy to have more employees become owners in the business. It better positions Setpoint for growth in the years to come. Amazing things happen when everyone in the organization is rowing in the same direction with the same goals.”
