MBO - Management Buy Out

A Management Buy Out (MBO) - business is sold to members of the existing management team. An MBO usually occurs when:

  • A company or group sells a business which is no longer core to their future strategy
  • An owner manager wishes to retire
  • A trade sale is difficult

An MBO is usually a life changing event, providing ambitious managers the opportunity to create substantial value in a company they own and control.

Our role is invaluable in ensuring the MBO happens. It’s not only important that the right deal is negotiated, it is also important that the deal is properly financed. We have excellent relationships with many of Europe’s leading banks and other debt providers as well as with Private Equity Houses and will help raise the right funding package for your business.

Having the right advisor is critical. Whilst the MBO is progressing it is very easy to get swamped in the deal process. Our job is to manage all aspects of the transaction leaving the management team to run the business.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss how we can help you complete a succesful MBO.
