Management buy-outs in Ireland primarily occur for three different reasons:
- When a large company is seeking to dispose of part of its business
- When the owner-manager of a business is looking to retire
- When the company´s management team believes the business is undervalued or could be performing with greater efficiency
An alternative scenario to the third item on the above list is when an external management team takes over a company. This is referred to as a management buy-in; and, although a different management team is driving the transaction, the management buy-out process and the management buy-in process are virtually identical.
Whether you are looking to buy-out a business or buy into a business, the team at Friel Stafford have twenty years of providing management buy-out advice, and we can support you every stage of acquiring (or disposing of) a company in Ireland.
