Future-proof your business by planning for the next stage

Two colleagues discussing exit planning strategies


Management buyouts

A business owner has a number of options when considering an exit and one of these is to sell the company to the existing management team. Ask yourself:

  • Do you have a strong, ambitious and capable management team?
  • Are you keen to provide your business with continuity after your exit?
  • Are the number of potential buyers for your business limited?

A successfully managed MBO allows for a smooth transition of ownership and tends to lead to a reduced risk of failure going forward. It is also a softer exit strategy for other employees and trading partners.

We have significant experience in managing the MBO process and assisting with raising the requisite finance required to facilitate the buy-out.


Employee ownership

Whether the business owners are looking at potential exit routes, or simply wish to empower the staff to deliver superior organisational performance, employee ownership may provide the perfect solution.

There are a number of benefits that employee ownership can offer and when partnered alongside a culture that gives employees a greater say in how the organisation is run, the business can be propelled towards a new generation of success.

Through our financial expertise, we have helped a number of our clients to achieve employee ownership status and reap the rewards of this tax efficient strategy.

Empower your staff and discuss employee ownership with us.
