“We help management teams understand what is possible in order to realise their ownership ambitions, whilst at the same time helping vendors achieve a successful exit.  It can often be a true win-win situation.”

Management buyouts

For the Wilson Partners Corporate Finance team, these are our favourite transactions! We understand that completing a successful management buyout can be a stressful and complicated process for any management team looking to take more ownership of their business. Advice is critical right from the start to help you navigate the risks associated with negotiating with the owners and funders to achieve the optimal outcome.

We have extensive experience covering all stages of MBOs, including:

  • Assessing overall feasibility
  • Negotiating with the seller/shareholders
  • Advising on business plan, information memorandum and forecast models
  • Determining the financial structure
  • Advising on the optimal tax structure and protections for management and the continuing business
  • Selecting appropriate debt and equity partners from our extensive network and negotiating the best structure and deal for the management, benchmarking terms and pricing
  • Project managing the entire deal from start through to completion

Why select us as your adviser and partner?

What sets us apart is that we haven’t always just been advisers. Of course, we’ve successfully completed many transactions but our Directors have had their own businesses, been investors, worked at the highest levels in financing institutions and navigated the legal system. We promise a pragmatic, straight talking and commercial approach to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
