Solvent Restructuring

There may be circumstances in which a solvent business requires to be re-structured; one example is the objective of a shareholder to exit from the company whilst the business is carried forward by its other shareholders.

We can advise on the available options including share buy backs and management buy ins.

Share buy-backs are an efficient method to achieve a re-structuring.  They involve the company acquiring an existing shareholders shares.  There are a number of conditions which need to be fulfilled for a legally valid repurchase of shares.  We will guide you through these conditions and provide the necessary documentation.  There have been recent changes in the law which simplify this process.

Management buy-ins allow a shareholder exit by bringing in fresh capital and new management.
