Management buyouts and buyins

If you are a senior management candidate and are either (i) considering a buyout of your existing employer or (ii) looking to complete the buyin of an SME with a valuation of sub £10m, then we can help you to effect both of these scenarios.

Regardless of sector or geographic location, we work with buyout candidates on management buyout deals for businesses with turnover < £25m and EBITDA <£5m.

We can help you to approach the owners; agree the price and structure; introduce you to funders and select a legal partner who will deliver a successful transaction for you as the buyer and the existing owners alike. Our service is collaborative and partner oriented, working with you throughout with one aim – to secure the right deal for you.

If you need to find additional management team members to join you, we can do this for you.

If you would like to carry out a private equity backed deal, we can introduce you to a range of private equity firms. Also, if necessary, we can help you to access a range of asset based lenders, regional/national grant funders, challenger and traditional (high street) banks, loan platforms, etc.

If you need a Non Executive or a Non Exec Chair, we can find that person for you.

We are in the process of re-vamping our deal origination services and will be offering these via a web portal from October 2022.

The portal will summarise hundreds of businesses for sale and the service will be charged for as a membership model, on a monthly/annual basis.

The new portal will offer direct access to businesses covering diverse sectors across the UK. You will be able to search the portal based on your own bespoke parameters covering turnover / ebitda / location / sector, with the ability to save the search results to your own secure area within the portal.

There will also be lots of educational and research information available, which will be particularly helpful for private buyers who are new to the idea of buying a business and need a greater amount of initial support.

For further info on the new portal, please contact

Please feel free to call Paul Griffiths on 07802716996 for an informal discussion in the first instance.
