Smith Cooper will help you create, structure and finance your MBO or MBI.

We act for management teams and buy-in candidates guiding them through what can be a complex, once in a lifetime experience.


Buy-outs can often be your first experience of a transaction so it is vital you get expert guidance through the process. Our strong connections in the banking and private equity market allow us to introduce you to the most relevant funders and agree the best deal for you.

There are many steps in the process of a buy out and our services will be tailored to meet your needs and typically include:

  • Feasibility assessment and financial modelling
  • Vendor approaches and deal structuring
  • Creation of a business plan and financial forecasts
  • Advice on the valuation and offer terms
  • Leading negotiations with the vendor and finance partners
  • Raising finance and agreeing the optimum equity and debt deals
  • Provision of commercial input to the legal and due diligence processes.
  • Project management to a successful conclusion
