A manager in a business looking for your next challenge? Interested in owning your own company? A business owner looking to sell and considering the future role of your management team? An entrepreneur looking to buy your next company?

If you are in any of the above scenarios there may be a realistic option for new or existing management to buy the business.  These transactions are commonly known as management buy-outs (“MBO”) or management buy-ins (“MBI”).  An MBI is only different in that it involves the introduction of new management in some form possibly alongside existing management.  Since differences between these two transactions are not significant, the remainder of this site refers mainly to MBO’s.
