Home Our Services Management Buyouts

We are experts in both bank backed and private equity backed management buyouts ("MBOs"). Done correctly, MBOs can be an excellent way to help you pass on the business to the management team.

Our relationships with both major banks and challenger banks provides you with access to the funds to allow the management team to fund the buyout.

The structure typically allows the vendor to extract a significant proportion of value today whilst maintaining a minority stake in the "newco" structure.

Bishopsgate has established relationships with all the major debt providers and we are well placed to advise clients looking to refinance existing debt facilities or raise new debt funding lines. We are experienced at negotiating with funders to achieve competitive pricing and we help clients produce forecasts and model alternative debt structures to achieve the very best terms.

Similarly, we have considerable experience of advising on management buy-in transactions.

Key Considerations

Management will be stepping up and assuming control of the business.

There is a balance to be struck between obtaining value for the vendor and structuring the transaction in a manner that does not constrain the business going forward.

A Management Buyout provides an alternative exit route.

A continuing role for the vendor can assist with the transition.
