Management Buyouts (MBOs) / Leveraged Buyouts (LBOs)
Certain transactions benefit from third party financing. This can be in the form of a term loan, mezzanine loan, debenture or other. In some cases, it requires that the proper financing in order for the internal buyer, successor to be in a position to process with a transaction (MBO).
In other situations, the transaction cannot be financed by internal capital resources or it is favorable for a client to finance a transaction externally (to preserve cash or to limit dilution). Properly evaluating the level of indebtedness of the merged entities ensures that the transaction is financed within acceptable parameters (LBO).
Moreover, a shareholder of a business may benefit by strategically extracting his/her equity value in the business by securing for the company the appropriate debt instruments, providing sufficient liquidity to repurchase of his/her shares (MBO).
