management buyout

= MBO
The acquisition of a company by its managers, often in the face of closure, after the acquisition of the company by another group that wishes to dispose of it, or occasionally as a result of its owners wishing to dispose of the business through a trade sale. In some cases a management buyout occurs when a large corporate group of companies wishes to divest itself of an operating division. Financial backers tend to like managers who know the company's business intimately, staking their own assets and taking full control of the company with the aim of boosting its profitability. Popularized in the early 1980s, management buyouts have occasionally failed, but many have continued to profit and a few have been sold on to major groups. In a highly leveraged buyout, funding will usually consist of a small amount of equity, allowing the management team to obtain and retain control, considerable straight debt, and a certain amount of mezzanine finance.
