Why choose our MBO/MBI services?

Management Buy – out (MBO) and Management Buy – in (MBI)

Well firstly, not wishing to blow our own trumpet but we have a 100% record in getting buyouts funded and over the line once heads of terms are agreed. As importantly however, we have strong understanding of the dynamics of selling to your management team or acting for management in what may be a once in a lifetime opportunity to become a business owner. It will be a new experience to many and you do not have to have huge personal financial resources to achieve it.

If you are you a manager in a business and you’re interested in owning your own company, or you own a business and you’re considering its long term future after you retire then why not contact us for a chat as to your options? A realistic option that should always be considered for an existing owner is for current management to buy the business as they are often best-placed to do so.

If you are an existing owner, the advantage for you is that a Management Buy Out (MBO) is generally a smoother route to take than a trade sale to another company as there is a pre-determined buyer in place who already knows the business and typically less onerous warranties/indemnities are required so it is a more risk-free route. It is also an opportunity to properly reward your management team with an opportunity to maintain your legacy and grow some value for themselves in the future. For the management team this could be a once in a lifetime opportunity to buy the business and create some personal wealth.

Our specialist MBO team will be able to assist you in the transaction by:

  • Acting as an intermediary between both parties during negotiation
  • Providing an independent view on valuation and the commercial terms of the deal
  • Preparing you for meetings with funders
  • Assisting you in preparing the necessary business plan and financial forecasts
  • Advising you on raising the finance on the right terms and financial structure and providing introductions to debt and equity financiers
  • Project managing the entire process to a successful completion

A Management Buy In (MBI) is a similar transaction but involves the introduction of new management to the business to effect the transaction. If you feel your management team needs strengthening to facilitate a sale then don’t give up, we have databases of contacts looking for such an opportunity with proven track records to assist you.
