Management Buy-in | Management Buy-out | Owner Buy-out

You have been working in a leading management position of a business and you are contemplating the idea of becoming a minority or majority shareholder of this company (MBO) or another business (MBI)? With regard to the realization of this complex task, besides the primary question of a general willingness of the owner to sell his shares, the question of how to finance the endeavor is of key importance. Where can I source financing from? What is the minimum equity requirement? What is the impact regarding personal guarantees and collaterals? What is my own financing limit? Do I need a co-investor and if so, where do I find such?

On the basis on our long-term experience with management buy-ins and management buy-outs we support our clients in finding a solution for these challenges. Due to our excellent network, we develop individual financing models and identify suitable financing partners. We advise and support you from the first approach of the current owner to the signing of the final agreements and, if desired, beyond.
