MBO's & MBI's
The opportunity for a management buy-out offers a management team a one off opportunity to take ownership and control of the business that they are managing.
We have extensive experience of advising management teams on how to navigate through the complexities of an MBO, from the early stages of negotiation with the current shareholder(s), through to securing finance and completing a successful deal.
We are sympathetic to the commercial pressures facing management teams in an MBO scenario, and work with them to ensure stresses are minimised and they are set up to compete with any rival trade bids. We are flexible on fees and are used to taking a risk on a successful completion.
MBOs can also offer a great opportunity for owners of businesses to exit by supporting and promoting an MBO. We have the expertise to work with owners in such circumstances and to structure transactions that are both tax efficient and make commercial sense.
For those management teams who are looking wider afield, we have significant experience of working on MBI opportunities. On such deals we deploy our due diligence expertise to ensure that the target has a clean bill of health and that the deal is set up for potential funders.
