LBO Advisory

The decision of whether or not to take a company private is very complex. CEOs and Boards of Directors must navigate a path that follows proper governance procedures, maximizes value to shareholders and respects the rights of a company’s various constituencies.


The partners at DBO have advised numerous CEOs and Boards of Directors on how they should think about going private. There are few transactions where it is easier to trip over conflicts or where a faulty process can lead to an inferior outcome. We have a high level of experience in going-private transactions and are free of conflicts facing bulge bracket firms who finance leveraged buyouts (“LBOs”).
