A management buy-out occurs when the management decides to buy out one or more existing shareholders or when the shareholder resigns in the context of business succession or because the company is no longer part of the core-business of the group or is loss-making. In many cases, management buy-outs are realised with the help of borrowed capital.
In a management buy-in, someone from outside the organisation buys into the ownership and management of a company. As with a management buy-out, a management buy-in is often a phased process in which the current owner gradually withdraws.
