MBOs and MBIs

In certain situations, management buy-outs and buy-ins are forms of transaction which can represent the best available solutions for both the selling shareholders and the acquirers. In most circumstances appropriate safeguards need to be enforced in order to ensure that fiduciary duties are obeyed, but provided the safeguards are adhered to MBOs and MBIs can prove to be the optimal solution for all parties. In many situations MBO or MBI teams do not have sufficient capital to make the acquisition outright and we work to advise teams on raising capital and implementing structures to ensure that the transaction is affordable. Please contact us directly to discuss potential opportunities and the fiduciary duties of buy-in or buy-out teams in such a situation.
