management buy-in

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The acquisition of a company by an outside team of managers, usually specially formed for the purpose, often backed by a venture-capital organization. In the past a typical target might have been a small family-owned company, which the owners wished to sell, or an unwanted subsidiary of a public company. In recent years, however, private equity firms have successfully targeted leading public companies.
