When business owners want to retire or move on, a management buyout (MBO) can provide a smooth transition of ownership as well as giving existing managers, or employees, a greater share in the business’s future success.
Buying the company or business they work for can also be an attractive alternative to starting up from scratch for an external management team.
MBOs can be complex transactions as a result of the number of different parties involved and their various interests.
