Management Buy-Outs

DC Dwek Corporate finance works with management teams and their shareholders to structure and execute successful management  buy-out.

In our opinion, a thriving MBO constitutes of:

  • a quality business with predictable cash flows and growth potential
  • an experienced management team and a motivated leader
  • committed financial institutions

Based on these elements, an appropriate financial structure can be implemented, in terms of debt, equity, working capital and capital expenditure.
Finally, a clear exit route for management and investors must be agreed at the outset.

DC Dwek Corporate Finance will use its systematic strategic approach and detailed execution to complete the MBO.
