Management Advisory

In today’s M&A environment, it’s not uncommon for businesses to experience more than one ownership transition. We work closely with public company boards, management teams, and shareholder groups to provide discreet, confidential advice to help achieve the most favourable outcomes in a transaction.

We offer a range of strategic and technical support to ensure proceeds are maximised, and where applicable, any rollover or reinvestment is made on the best possible terms for reinvestment. Our extensive global reach allows clients to access the most relevant financial sponsors and lenders for a given transaction, wherever they may be located.

For teams contemplating a management buy-out (MBO) – primary, secondary, tertiary or beyond – we act as a negotiation buffer between the management team and the shareholders while providing tactical and technical support around business planning and deal structuring.

Our independent, expert advice helps public company boards on all aspects of M&A and debt advisory transactions, including ‘public-to-private’ transactions, responding to unsolicited approaches, Rule 3 advice on takeover offers, and creating a discreet competitive sale process within the tight constraints of the UK Takeover Code.

  • “This is an incredibly exciting next phase in Musto’s evolution and we are invigorated by the prospect of working with a business as complementary to our own as Helly Hansen. We look forward to leveraging Helly Hansen’s global network and R&D capabilities, as we grow our market leading position in sailing, country and outdoor apparel. Livingstone provided great advice and guidance to the team whenever we needed them and their tireless support helped the deal to proceed smoothly and quickly.
