For many managers, a Management Buyout (MBO) is their first venture as an entrepreneur. It takes courage to leave the relative security and comfort of a management position to face the challenges of ownership and independent accountability. However, on reflection, most managers find that the personal satisfaction of controlling their own destiny is one of the biggest rewards from a Management Buyout.
Buying a company through a Management Buyout can be a shortcut to financial success. The risk is lower, conceptually at least, financing is easier to obtain, and the waiting period for a return on investment is shorter than starting a business from scratch.
One of the key mistakes we see repeatedly, is MBO teams securing funding, which quickly becomes evident is neither future proof nor fit for purpose.
In the cases of management buy-outs (MBOs) and management buy-ins (MBIs), the new leadership team needs certainty of funding to support their broader corporate strategy.
