What are Management Buyouts?

Management buyouts occur when the management of an organization buyout a portion or all of the shares of a company. When this happens, the management owns more stake in the company.


How are Management Buyouts Financed?

Management buyouts are financed using:

  • Management Equity - The management team has enough capital to buyout the business without third party involvement.
  • Debt - The management team finances the buyout by borrowing money. The management team can borrow money directly from the owner or take on bank debt to fund the acquisition.
  • Private Equity - Private equity funding may be needed if the management team uses leverage to buyout a business, but the debt is not enough to cover the full price.
