Can an ESOP purchase its employer stock from someone other than the employer?

Recommended Posts

At some point, a key employee may want to sell his one or two shares of employer stock (owned outside the plan) to the company's ESOP. I can't think of any reason why the ESOP couldn't purchase the shares from him at normal fair market value, but thought I would toss this out there in case I'm missing something.
