Normally used by a business to incentivise employees and typically expressed as a percentage. In property transactions it could be the share of profit between equal or unequal partners in a JV scheme. Or, a Developer may offer their team a Profit Share if they perform to time or budget. We most often see it if a Developer is deemed by the Lender not to have the necessary experience for that particular scheme. Rather than not lend, the Lender may suggest that they incentivise the main building contractor via profit share.
