Management Buy Ins & Outs
A management buyout (also known as a MBO) is a deal where the current management team of a business buys all or part of that business from its current owners. A management buy-in (also known as a MBI) is the same save that external managers are involved.
It is important to get good advice as early as possible if you are thinking of embarking on an MBO or MBI. We can help with this along with your other advisers such as your accountants. This may be something you only do once in a lifetime, so we appreciate that getting it right is crucial.
The process can be very lucrative but involves complex legal and financial issues (including those related to your operator’s licence(s)) and therefore can also sometimes be stressful and intense. We understand this and the fact you still have to continue running a business. Our aim is to provide support when you need it most so you can get on with running your business with as little interference as possible.
At Backhouse Jones, our corporate team are happy to assist. We are experienced in carrying out transactions of all sizes and types and have an in-depth understanding of businesses in the bus, coach and HGV sectors and issues peculiar to them. We will listen to your thoughts and the manner in which you run your business, because we understand that each business is different and that you want to get the MBO or MBI done.
