This book provides managers and executives with the necessary tools and strategies for leading a company or division buyout.

Successful management buyouts (MBOs) are the pinnacle of business success today and a great way to earn an ever-increasing stake in the American dream. Buyout explores the details of the entire buyout process and empowers managers to seize their destiny and take charge.

Managers learn how to:

  • Find a company to purchase
  • Develop a business plan
  • Negotiate with the seller
  • Win the "ground war" of due diligence
  • Find equity partners and negotiate the management deal with investors
  • Run the company after the MBO.

Buyout offers real-life stories of people who pulled off out-of-this-world deals and became rich beyond their wildest expectations.
