Management buy-outs (“MBOs”) or Management buy-ins (“MBIs”) usually represent rare opportunities for the management team of a business.
We understand that the process is complex, time consuming and can often be an emotional rollercoaster. We know it can be an arduous process, and as your Corporate Finance Team, we are here to help guide you through. Our approach is to manage the process in such a way that is results in minimum disruption to your every day working life.
An MBO can be a time consuming, complex and emotional process. We support MBO teams every step of the way, allowing them to concentrate on doing what they do best; running the business.
We will deal with the vendor, solicitors, banks, finance providers and accountants so that the MBO team can relax in the knowledge that they have experts dealing with these parties on their behalf.
Our approach includes the full service, from assessing the proposition and valuation of the business, to providing you with strategic advice, preparing business plans, finance proposals and dealing with all parties in the negotiations.
And, through our strong relationships with finance providers, we are able to source competitive rates and help to ensure that your case meets their lending criteria.
With a management buy in, further work may need to be done to identify an appropriate target. Our network of national contacts means that we can find one that suits your circumstances and objectives.
In our experience, MBIs are perceived to be more risky than MBOs and this means the funder’s appetite is not as strong. It is therefore important for these to be professionally managed and presented in such a manner to maximise the potential for a successful outcome.
