Management Buy In / Buy Out

It is important in any business for its owners to determine an appropriate exit strategy, particularly to ensure the continuation of the business and the legacy that some owners may have worked a lifetime to create.

A company’s management team can provide a very effective exit strategy, as they have knowledge and experience of the business. If the existing management team do not provide an adequate exit route, external management teams can buy into the business.
