Management buy outs (MBOs)

It’s no understatement to describe the MBO process as a balancing act. While one hand is buying, the other is likely raising finance to fund that acquisition.

Why should you consider an MBO?

As a business owner, MBOs are a great way for you to ensure that your business legacy continues, even after you’ve moved on. Your shares will be purchased by other existing shareholders or management, which encourages a smoother transaction because they already know the ins and outs of your business. This streamlined process can, after agreeing the all-important purchase price, mean a far simpler transaction for both parties.

You may be concerned about the sale to a trade purchaser, where your business identity and independence could be lost, or to a Private Equity house, which will prioritise medium term financial returns. A MBO gives your senior management team the chance to become owners and implement their own ideas in the future without having significant personal capital upfront.

The key to a successful transaction

For fruitful results, all sides need to get the right funds, for the right price, at the right time. To make that equation add up, it’s vital to have an adviser you can trust to guide you at every step. Because no matter what stage you’re at, our team will be your safety net with the expertise to help you avoid any unsettling slip-ups throughout the transaction.
