We help business owners who would like to sell their business to their team through a management buy out. We have developed a novel method for doing this that balances the interests of the owner and their team. The collaborative approach we adopt keeps things as simple as possible and avoids the risk (a big one) of external financiers pitting you against your team in negotiations.
As your business matures you will need to think about how best to lock in your key team members as you think about your retirement planning. A well-designed share incentive that aligns your and their interests may be very important.
You may benefit from a legal audit so that you can “take stock” of all your legal affairs. A restructuring may need to be thought through and pre-sale tax planning undertaken ahead of a business sale.
Perhaps external capital such as private equity can help you grow your business to the next level or you may want to consider overseas expansion.
Our team has considerable experience in helping business owners plan for and deliver their personal and company plans.
