Questions about our services?

Yes, there are three letter acronyms all over the place. This one, an MBO, stands for a Management Buyout. So what does that mean?

If you are a business owner and you are looking to sell your business, one of your options might be an MBO.

You might have grown the business from just you as a one man band to now, when the time is right to let go and sell. So how do you do that? A trade sale? What happens to your management team who have helped you build the business? An MBO can present a significant opportunity for a management team and an appealing alternative to a trade sale for the vendor.

MBO’s allow ambitious management teams to take control of the business they are in and continue to drive it forward.​ For a strong management team, the prospect of taking control of the business represents a life-changing opportunity to determine their own destiny. ​

Our specialist Corporate Finance team has significant experience of Management Buyouts. We can spot the key issues and for both sides and structure a deal, using professional diplomacy and objectivity – a WIN:WIN. We manage the MBO process from initial feasibility through to proposals, negotiations, fundraising and completion. So if you are thinking of selling your business you may have already found a buyer! And if you are part of a management team and the business you have helped build is being sold, perhaps it’s time to throw your hat in the ring? Let’s talk!
