RCP MBOInvesting in Excellence

It’s quite common for a senior management team in a privately owned business to consider buying equity in the business they’ve helped to build. However, it’s a potentially daunting prospect. Most management teams don’t have adequate funds, and many feel that as a team, they lack experience of business ownership. Many recruitment companies have been founded by 2 or more partners, and often those partnerships get to a level whereby one or more may want to choose a different personal journey moving forward and sell their stake to the remaining partner(s).

This is where RECRUITMENT CAPITAL PARTNERS provides value far beyond the initial capital investment. For over 20 years we’ve been investing in and supporting growing businesses. We know what it takes and are expert in helping management teams make the transition to business ownership.

The right private equity investor can act as a catalyst for positive change. Injecting capital and gaining strategic advice can make you feel more confident about making bold decisions that can transform the business: acquisitions, entering new markets, or hiring new key people.

What works for you?

You might seek external investment to help buy the business you manage for a number of reasons, including to:

  • Preserve the management structure if the owner wants to sell the business.
  • Enhance the business with new capital and support.
  • Realise more of the financial benefits from your successful contributions to the company.
  • Broach the subject of a management buyout in the first place.

How can we help?

In any management buyout situation, we begin by listening, watching and learning. We work to understand:

  • The management capabilities you have now.
  • What additional resources you may need post buy-out.
  • Your market and the key drivers for growth.
  • Which prospective buyers may help you realise the value you build up in the business.

When we partner with you, your business will receive all the benefit of our experience, expertise and support. This may include:

  • Committing to invest in your people and infrastructure during the early years as needed to establish a robust and scalable platform.
  • Supporting new approaches to talent management or product development.
  • Funding, contacts or resources to help you expand into international markets.
  • Providing additional expertise as needed in functional areas (HR, finance, marketing, etc).
  • Introducing a chairman with relevant experience and senior-level recruitment to enhance the management team.
  • Helping you adjust your growth strategy to new opportunities.
  • Introducing you to a strong network of relevant contacts and advisors.
  • Insightful input into the development of a growth strategy that ultimately leads to a successful exit.
  • Ongoing active involvement to adjust the strategy to new market and economic conditions.
