This is funding which has the advantage of not having to be repaid in the near future, therefore it is not a debt burden to the future trading performance of the business.
Deferred Consideration or Earn Out
In most cases, the vendor will usually need to defer a proportion of the consideration in order for an MBO to proceed. In some cases, funding offers can be conditional on a proportion of the consideration being deferred.
An earn-out structure may lead to additional consideration being payable to the vendor if the business achieves or surpasses specific financial targets following completion of the buyout.
