Vicarage Ventures is recognised as a leading adviser on MBOs, with the experience, commitment and relationships to manage the often complex and time consuming process on behalf of management teams.
An MBO is an opportunity for management teams to generate significant personal wealth, therefore they must have advisers who they can trust and who have the experience to not only negotiate the best possible deal for the team, but also the ability to secure funding appropriate to the transaction and the specific circumstances of their business.
Vicarage Ventures has strong relationships with the UKâ€™s leading venture capitalists and debt providers and, as a result, has a deep understanding of not only their requirements to achieve a successful completion but also the many pitfalls that can jeopardise that goal.
We make it our responsibility to manage the many complexities of the process and to ensure that management teams remain focused on maintaining the performance of the business at this crucial time. We offer strong and impartial advice throughout what can often be an emotional roller-coaster of a process.
The Risks of Investing in Early Stage Companies.Â Be warned: investment in start-up and early stage companies will not yield results in the short-term. Any returns from such a shareholding will be dependent on the performance of the investee company; the value and any income from such an investment can just as easily fall as it can rise. Investors may not get back the amount originally invested and investee companies may not pay dividends. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Shares in an unlisted company may be difficult to sell and it may be difficult to obtain reliable information about their value. Vicarage Ventures does not act for investors or provide advice as to the merits of investing in any company and therefore will not be responsible to investors for providing the protections afforded its clients. Investment in companies at an early stage of development is only suitable for investors capable of evaluating their risks and advantages and who have sufficient resources to bear any loss that might result from such an investment. Prospective investors should carefully consider whether such an investment suits them when their personal financial circumstances are taken into account. If you are in any doubt as to the suitability of such investments, you should seek independent financial advice.
