At VEXUS, we pioneer in facilitating transitions through Employee Ownership, a proven strategy that fosters shared success and nurtures the existing legacy of businesses through collaborative efforts. We also operate a specialist Employee Ownership Trust division, see more at www.eot.co.uk. where we partner with some of the UK's leading legal and transition specialists.

Hybrid Exit Strategies - Exploring your options

In pursuing a hybrid strategy, business owners are afforded the flexibility to confidentially place their business on the market to judiciously review proposals and offers before making an informed decision to sell to a third party or to the employees. This balanced approach harmoniously combines EOTs and trade buyer or investor exit strategies, letting you have a comprehensive perspective on both external and employee transaction avenues, ensuring that you secure the best possible deal that aligns with your objectives.

Management Buyouts (MBOs)

MBOs offer an excellent alternative, where the existing management team acquires the business. This option ensures the business thrives under a team familiar with its operational dynamics, thus maintaining a steady trajectory of growth while leveraging the existing managerial expertise.
