Management Buyouts (MBO)


Advisory Services for Management Buyouts

Management buyouts (MBOs) are an opportunity for management teams to acquire the companies that they are currently running, but the company is in need of new ownership. They offer a way for current managers to continue seeing their company succeed and to receive the benefit of ownership of a business that they already know extremely well.

As experienced owner-operators who have built, run, and sold our own businesses, the CAVU team has the right expertise to advise management teams as they pursue an MBO. Planning and executing an MBO can be complex and involves a number of tasks, from financial modeling to valuation to strategic planning, and CAVU is here to help.

Whether current ownership is seeking an exit or management is seeking a different strategic path, we can help management teams navigate the multi-faceted process and secure the right valuation and future ownership structure for the business. We’re here to help you make the best management decision as part of the buyout process.

Be supported by a team that truly understands how to navigate decision-making in management buyouts and know that your operation will be a success.
