Management Buy Out / In (MBO & MBI)
Occasionally individuals and teams get the opportunity to buy out existing shareholders from, or buy into, a business. MBO and MBIs can be sensitive. They often involve competing agendas which may in some cases become a distraction to running a business. Keenan CF assist to smooth this process.
Once agreed, funding of MBOs can be challenging. This will often involve various sources of finance including debt, venture capital / private equity, sweat equity and loan notes. When properly executed, and with the right advice, MBOs can result in a positive and lucrative outcome for both the existing vendor and the management team. Keenan CF have advised on many successful MBOs and have a first class track record of successfully helping our clients negotiate the process, and access capital to make deals happen.
