A Management Buy-Out (MBO) or Management Buy-In (MBI) is an opportunity for management teams to own their business as well as to generate significant personal wealth providing the deal is well structured. An MBO process can be technically complicated and time-consuming. Therefore management teams or shareholders need advisors who they trust and who have the experience to not only negotiate the best possible deal for them, but also to secure funding appropriate to the transaction and the specific circumstances of their business.
We advise management teams throughout the entire MBO process from assessing the prospects of a transaction to building a solid financial model, identifying sources of funding whether they are private equity, banks or other lenders, negotiating the transaction and providing a robust tax structure whilst managing the deal through to completion.
We have strong relationships with the UK’s leading private equity houses and debt providers and, as a result, have a deep understanding of not only their requirements to achieve a successful completion but also how to secure the best terms in the current market.
Our corporate finance team advises a significant number of management teams every year and our role is to secure the best equity deal for them using our expertise of such transactions, market norms and private equity requirements.
We make it our responsibility to actively manage the many complexities of the process and to ensure that management teams remain focused on maintaining the performance of the business at this crucial time.
