Private Debt and LBO
Private Debt and LBO often go hand in hand in the complex world of Mergers and Acquisitions, and they’re taken care of by some highly experienced finance professionals. LBO refers to a leveraged buyout, a transaction in which a company is bought with a mix of debt and equity. The company’s income can act as a guarantee to repay the money that’s been borrowed to complete the acquisition.
Simply put, it’s when a company buys another company through financing. This method of buyout (funded by debt) is a fairly common occurrence in Mergers and Acquisitions, but it’s not without its risks. It’s a move often made by business owners at the end of their careers, who want to move on from the company with a reliable exit strategy, but there are plenty of other reasons it might be utilised.
LBOs can be used to cash out on underperforming business, or to transform a publicly traded company into a private one (by transferring the public shares to a private investor). If the debt is unable to be serviced, the LBO will ultimately result in bankruptcy. Since the interest rates can be so high on acquired debt, thorough risk analysis is essential. The LBO takeover process can be long and intricate, requiring the skills of many experienced individuals throughout the buyout. Careful risk management can ensure that the buyout maximises rewards for everyone involved (although the buyer naturally has a clear advantage). If you’re considering undergoing an LBO, you’ll need to make sure you’ve got the right people on board.
From Asset Finance jobs to private equity manager roles and risk analysts, a successful LBO needs to pass through many hands if it’s to be successful.

Business Protection and Enablement Recruitment Services in Dublin
Business is booming in Dublin. From the rapidly expanding Fintech landscape, to the thriving tech sector, there are plenty of opportunities for anyone hoping to carve out a career in a truly astonishing city. Dublin is an attractive prospect for overseas talent, boasting a high standard of living and extremely competitive wages, particularly in the world of business enablement and business protection.
A business-friendly tax scheme (one of the lowest corporate tax rates in all of Europe) and a sturdy economy make the city an enticing prospect for entrepreneurs, and as a hotspot for ambitious tech companies, there’s a wealth of talent to tap into. It’s not just the business benefits that convince investors and individuals to flock to Dublin, it’s the city itself. With an unmistakable charm, a unique beauty, and an energy that you scarcely find anywhere on the planet, Dublin is a hub of culture.
Here at Broadgate, we’ve thoroughly enjoyed delivering staffing solutions to businesses all over Dublin, and we’ve had a great time establishing our presence in the city. We like to be in the heart of the action, and while we work hard to make sure our flexible working policy is reliable, we recognise the value of a strong physical presence in the markets that you’re working in. Our Dublin office is home to a passionate bunch of highly specialised consultants, all of whom have a wealth of experience in recruiting for risk and analytics, finance, accounting and audit, compliance, legal and financial crime, transformation and change, and other areas relating to business protection and business enablement.
Among soaring demand for talent, the threat of a looming recession, and the incredible growth of sectors in the city, Dublin’s companies are going to need to pull out all the stops to secure the right candidates. This can make it difficult for companies struggling with their talent pipeline, particularly those who are looking to scale quickly and build diverse teams.
The recruitment process can take its toll on time, money, and team morale if you keep getting it wrong. The consequences of a bad hire are wide-reaching, and they can be hard to undo. Here at Broadgate, we use a community-led, diversity-focussed hiring methodology to ensure that we pinpoint the best people for the job, while making the best possible impact on the wider world.
A lot of the time, internal hiring managers will rely heavily on their personal networks to source candidates, or they’ll resort to a range of job boards (which everyone else has access to), and this means they’re in no position to benefit from the potential of a wider talent pool. Whether you’re looking to fill exceptionally niche finance director jobs in Dublin, or you’re just moving to the city and want to start a new career, we can utilise our expansive, exclusive, and reliable talent network to find you the best opportunities.
If you’re looking for a Dublin recruitment agency, or perhaps rather, a global staffing agency with a presence in Dublin, then please reach out to the team today, we’re here to help.
