Explaining ‘Management And Employee Buyout – MEBO’
MEBOs are generally used to privatize a publicly traded company, but can also be used as an exit strategy for venture capitalists or other shareholders in an already private firm. MEBOs can often be seen as bringing greater efficiency to a firm’s production because it can provide added job security to employees, which motivates them to give a stronger effort to improve company profitability.
