Sucession funding is for any potential buyer looking to acquire an existing and established business.

  • A workforce looking to safeguard their future

External buyers

  • Entrepreneurs looking to buy their next business

What are your options?

Through the funds we manage and the banks and investors we work with Finance Wales can support a full range of succession options and scenarios.

Common examples include:

  • Management Buy-Out (MBO) - Where an existing management team or workforce purchases a business from its owners
  • Management Buy-In (MBI) - Where a management team purchases all of another business’ shares or assets
  • Business Acquisitions - When one company takes over another and clearly establishes itself as the new owner
  • Vendor Initiated Management Buy-Out - The owner of a business leads the MBO process, part funding it through deferred consideration.
