STRUCTURING SELLER EQUITY

Has anyone executed a deal where the seller is seeking an equity stake in the business post-acquisition? The best advice I've received thus far is to structure it as part of an earn-out arrangement with attainment of clear benchmarks, which makes a lot of sense as it would help align the seller's interests with success of the business long after the acquisition. I'd appreciate any more thoughts, concerns or nuggets of wisdom.
