A comprehensive look at the Management Buyout--from initial dream to final success.

Successful management buyouts (MBOs) are the pinnacle of business success today and a great way to earn an ever-increasing stake in the American dream.

Buyout provides managers and executives with the necessary tools and strategies for leading a company or division buyout. It explores the details of the entire buyout process and empowers managers to seize their destiny and take charge. Managers learn how to:

* Find a company to purchase

* Develop a business plan

* Negotiate with the seller

* Win the ""ground war"" of due diligence

* Find equity partners and negotiate the management deal with investors

* Run the company after the MBO.

Buyout offers real-life stories of people who actually pulled off out-of-this-world deals and became rich beyond their wildest expectations.
