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 Manchester
Manchester has developed a name for itself as a hub of innovation. Along with some of the best bands to ever grace the planet, Manchester is home to a thriving a finance sector, a growing legal industry, and a bustling creative hotspot, boasting some of the biggest brands found anywhere. Here at Broadgate, we love being close to the centre of the action, which is one of the many reasons why we decided to open our Manchester office back in 2018. Since then, we’ve been lucky enough to provide staffing solutions for hundreds of companies, enabling us to make incredible progress on our mission to build diversity, create inclusion, and encourage workplace innovation.
The current talent shortage is proving to be exceptionally difficult for the Manchester recruitment scene, but using our vast talent network and the passion of our highly experienced consultants, we’re able to pinpoint candidates at the drop of a hat, even when times get tough. Turning to a third-recruitment agency is a great way to save yourself a huge amount of time and money throughout the process, and it grants you access to a much wider talent pool.
The team at Broadgate specialise in delivering staffing solutions in Cybersecurity, Finance, Accounting and Audit, Risk and Analytics, Transformation and Change, Compliance, Legal, and Financial Crime, and other areas relating to business protection and business enablement. We’re not like other Manchester recruitment agencies – we’re a people-before-profit operation that takes a DEIB-led approach to hiring (diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging).
By placing people at the heart of every decision, we’re able to access talent from the widest available candidate pool. Many internal hiring managers will rely solely on their personal network to source a new hire, and this effectively limits narrows the search. Narrow can be good, but not when it lacks the depth needed to fill technical roles. Our expert consultants have a wealth of industry knowledge, and when this is combined with a granular understanding of the job market in Manchester, we can expand the search in the right direction, enabling us to get it right the first time.
Manchester is rife with talent, it’s just a question of knowing where to find the right people, and then supporting those people on their journey towards their new career. Along with providing interview guides and CV writing tips, we have plenty of resources that have been expertly assembled by our experienced consultants, allowing us to empower our candidates and advocate for their own extraordinary skillsets.
