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.

Los Angeles has a wealth of opportunity for those wishing to thrive in the world of business enablement and business protection, and as a highly specialised staffing agency that focuses on these areas, that’s exactly why we opened an office here (that, and the divine weather).

In a turbulent world, where looming recessions and talent shortages threaten to make business incredibly difficult, outsourcing your hiring processes can save you a huge amount of time and money. On top of this, Compliance, legal, cybersecurity and Finance jobs in LA command extremely competitive salaries, and in a candidate-driven market, this can make attracting and retaining talent extremely difficult.
By outsourcing your hiring function, you don’t have to worry about searching the whole of Los Angeles for a new hire that you can’t necessarily depend on – the team at Broadgate can do this for you. We always make sure to match our candidates with opportunities in which we know they can thrive. This enables us to hire candidates who align with your company’s vision, both technically and culturally.
By leaning on our expansive community network of talent, we can access candidates from a much wider pool, a pool that would otherwise be invisible.
