Management buy-outs (MBOs)

Rix & Kay’s Corporate lawyers in Sussex and Kent work in partnership with both management teams and owners of businesses, to project manage the MBO process from start to finish.

Whether you are part of the management team or the business owner, our approach is to guide you through every step whilst taking a proactive lead in managing often sensitive negotiations between the respective parties. The result is MBOs that are delivered in an open and transparent way but with a focus on achieving a deal that works in the best interest of everyone, including the businesses own clients, suppliers, its workforce and other stakeholders.

Our Management buy-out lawyers’ expertise includes:

  • Supporting funding solutions through traditional banking and finance or other ways to raise capital
  • Negotiating and securing the full range of agreements often required in an MBO from heads of terms; non-disclosure; shareholder and share purchase; investor; and director service agreements
  • Setting up a newco that is often the bedrock of any successful MBO
  • Full service corporate support to ensure critical areas such as articles of association; security documents; cross guarantees and shareholder resolutions are in place and offer the right level of robustness and flexibility
