Management buy-out

If you are offered the opportunity to buy the business for which you work, or indeed you would like to create the opportunity, it can mean access to a life-changing series of events.

Management teams often make once in a lifetime returns from modest investments in such transactions. Getting them off the ground in the first place is a sensitive and complex task. Not only does the transaction have to be negotiated with the current shareholders of your business, but funding needs to be put in place and the deal for the management team negotiated both between themselves and with investors.

Funding normally comes from a mixture of private equity and debt. In some circumstances, vendors can assist in the financing structure by providing loans back to the management team to bridge any funding gaps.

We have the experience to guide you through all the stages of this intricate process to ensure that your deal is completed.
