An MBO or MBI occurs when the existing management of a company (MBO) respectively an external management team (MBI) acquires shares of a company with their own financial capacities or external resources with the involvement of financial investors (LBO). MBOs are complex and time consuming and thus often bear risks for the involved company and the management team.
