Buyout private equity enables the acquisition of a majority control or all¬†interest in a company.¬†These funds¬†can be used in different types¬†of transactions including leveraged buyouts, management buyouts, and employee buyouts, all of¬†which can be backed by buyout venture capital firms in exchange for shares in the acquired company.¬†Some of the largest private equity¬†firms in the world are experts in providing buyout funding to emerging and mature companies looking to pursue acquisition growth or distressed companies in need of bringing in new majority shareholders.¬†Leveraged buyout financing, for instance, is intended to enable¬†large-scale acquisitions without using too much capital upfront. Instead, the assets of the acquired firm are used as collateral for the¬†debt.
While some buyout capital firms are focused in specific industries or stages in a company, some firms have diverse funds specifically for these types of transactions.¬†Whether your company is in distress¬†or in¬†high-growth mode, submit your business plan to FindVenture.com and get connected with buyout capital funding opportunities.
