Management buyout (MBO) advisors

What is Shield’s management buyout advisory service?

As management buyout advisors, we provide 'soup-to-nuts' advice on your MBO:

• feasibility
• funding
• how to broach it with the owners
• selection of debt and equity providers
• business valuation and negotiation with funders and sellers.

Who is it for?

We act as management buyout advisors for managers (or owners) of businesses with profits of over £1m and stable, predictable cash flows, in any sector.

How long does a management buyout take?

A management buyout takes 1-3 months, typically.

Why should I retain a specialist mangagement buyout advisor, and why Shield?

Shield Corporate Finance has extensive experience in achieving management buyout success even against the odds (see our management buyout case study on a leading access control security system company).

Shield can help you find the best backers for your particular business. We know the private equity world well and understand the size and sector preferences of the many funds in the UK and internationally.

You will be treated as a valued client, not a target for sales of other financial services. We'll give you senior attention and old-fashioned independent advice, untainted by any conflicts of interest, such as attempts to finance selected buyers at the same time. And you'll get an M&A team who understand the process and psychology of M&A work, not fresh from an IPO or a bond issue.

How do you charge for your management buyout service?

We typically charge a modest monthly fee, plus a success fee. All in all, our clients tend to find that the value we deliver to them in terms of enhanced equity positions for the management buyout team pays for our services many, many times over. What do our clients say?

Next steps?

If your profits are over £1m, please contact us to discuss your needs with no obligation. We understand and respect the extreme confidentiality and sensitivity of these situations, and understand that you may wish to remain anonymous by using a pseudonym. We are happy to call you outside of office hours or at weekends if you prefer.
