Many times in business, one owner wants to buyout a business owner, or one business partner wants to move in a different direction from the other business partner. This necessitates the need to buyout a business partner or execute an owner buyout. An owner may be investigating alternative exit strategies, or is ready to sell their business interests to employees, family, or an outside company and an owner buyout is called for.
Partner Buyout Services/Buyout Business Partner:
Lantern Capital Advisors helps business owners, management teams, and minority shareholders confidentially explore executing leveraged and management buyouts, buyout business partners, or execute owner buyouts while allowing the purchaser to realize control of the business and create significant value.
Partner Buyout Services (Buyout Business Partner) and Lantern Capital Advisors
Lantern Capital Advisors works with management teams and owners to evaluate a company’s business and potential for individuals to buyout a business partner. If it is believed that the future of the business provides a strong potential for success, Lantern Capital Advisors consults with executives and management to draft a letter of intent (proposal) to purchase the Company from the owner.
Often one of the biggest road blocks to successfully buyout a business partner is the owner’s belief whether management is a qualified buyer, or if the financing is achievable. To gain the confidence of management and the owner, Lantern Capital Advisors works with the company to pre-qualify the owner buyout with multiple potential lenders/investors prior to submitting a final proposal to the owners so that both owner and buyer can feel confident a deal can get done. Lantern Capital Advisors can also help management and owner identify an independent valuation firm to justify the purchase price both for the potential buyer and seller.
Once an owner accepts the letter of intent, Lantern Capital Advisors will work with management to draft a business plan and financing request to secure the needed capital. Lantern Capital Advisors will arrange meetings with interested lenders and investors and will assist with the negotiations of all financing proposals.
The goal is to find financing that optimizes management’s ownership potential and long term objectives, and maximizes the sellers liquidity.
Once the financing is in place, Lantern Capital Advisors works with the owners and management to monitor due diligence and close on the purchase transaction. Lantern Capital Advisors can also coordinate with legal and accounting professionals to optimize the structure of the new company and purchase. This includes an analysis of a full or partial ESOP structure for the transaction.

Management Buyout Topics From Our White Paper Library
Accomplishing a management buyout where management owns a significant portion of the equity requires some out of the box thinking that can go against the conventional wisdom for financing management buyouts. Lantern Capital Advisors suggests five important strategies for both completing a buyout and maximizing management ownership.
Many times in business, one owner wants to buyout another owner, or one business partner wants to move in a different direction from the other business partner. Lantern Capital Advisors works with management teams to achieve management buyout financing.
Abstract: Private equity firms particularly those that focus on buying smaller companies (less than $100 million in value), will often structure the financing of a buyout utilizing limited amounts of their own equity and aggressive debt structures. While such an approach can create spectacular returns for their investors, management and the sellers can often end up feeling shortchanged. Thankfully, owners and managers can use their own creative buyout strategies to create substantially more value for both buyer (management) and seller (owner).

“I spoke with multiple financial firms about the possibility of conducting a management buyout of a particular division. Most of them seemed more interested in developing a long term relationship with the parent company than they were in securing the best possible deal for me. I was then referred to Lantern Capital Advisors and things just clicked. They listened carefully to my vision for the business and patiently explained every step of the management buyout process. They met every expedited timeline and used their extensive network to find me the best possible investment group. I don't know that a deal would have been completed without their guidance. I would recommend Lantern Capital Advisors to anyone contemplating a similar transaction.”
