Buy the business you manage
Buying a stake in the business you’ve helped to build should be an enormously exciting prospect – but it can also be a little daunting. With ownership comes amazing opportunities, but also the challenge of prioritising and finding the right funding for your future.
Why a management buy out might suit you and your business
There are good reasons for ambitious management teams to consider a management buy out (MBO) and they often come to us in a variety of situations. For example:
- to allow the team to keep the management structure intact when the owner is selling
- to grow the business with new funding from the MBO and advice from an experienced investor
- to see the financial rewards from their work for the company
- to help broach the subject of a management buy out in the first place.
Wanting to play a leading role in the next step of the business journey that you have helped to map out is completely understandable. From our point of view, if you’re already running the business, you will understand it better than anyone else – and have a better view of its potential and how to fulfil this.
You will have the advantage of having already built strong relationships with customers, suppliers and staff. And you will be able to benefit from the potential rewards and control that comes with being the owner of a business rather than an employee.
