Hi, MichaelSB.

I had a similar, but not the same, situation. Perhaps the info will help. In my case, I was able to buy shares in a privately held company. The downside was illequidity if I stayed with the company. The positive was that the company would go public and I would benefit. The slightly positive was that if I left the company, they would buy back the shares at 1*yearly growth rate, which was pretty high.

If you needed your money and you still worked at the company, could you sell your shares back? To be honest with you, this would be my biggest concern. I suggest you check into this. (I'm not a professional, though, just a Fool in the making.)
