The MBO GROUP Forum on Management Buyouts to a Delegation from the Chinese Institute of Public Accountants in Toronto

By | September 21, 2015

The MBO Group Inc. was invited to present a two day program on Management Buyouts to the Chinese Institute of Public Accountants (CICPA) delegation visiting Canada in September 2015.

Every year for the last 10 years the CICPA has been leading delegations of their top CPAs to visit the USA and the UK and this year for the first time they visited financial institutions and organizations in Canada. The two day program, with 26 participants, was led by Stuart Morley, co-founder of The MBO Group and Canada Country Head, and included a combination of case studies, individual and team assignments that provided participants with a real world experience that they had not been exposed to during their travels nor at any of the top business schools that some of the participants have attended.

Ms. Bai Xiaohong, leader of the CICPA delegation stated “I felt very lucky that we had an opportunity to learn from you. Once again, thanks for your excellent class!”

About The MBO Group

We are a boutique advisory firm specializing in assisting three types of “buy side” clients:
• Managers wanting to buy the businesses or divisions that they work for, known as a Management Buyout.
• Entrepreneurs who need help in identifying, contacting, negotiating and financing the purchase of a private company.
• Existing business owners wanting help to grow by acquisitions of other private companies.

We are a team of professionals who have spent our entire careers working beside private company owners and helping them grow their businesses. Our backgrounds as bankers and private equity investors give us a unique ability to guide our clients through the roller coaster ride of buying a company.

We take a long term view. We want clients who appreciate our candour and transparency, take comfort that we are willing to help them find the right business, negotiate the right deal, with a sound financing structure and support the business growth beyond the first acquisition.

In Their Words

Mike Bradley at The MBO Group NZ was great at helping us identify the target businesses to help us grow. Once we had the targets confirmed, Mike was instrumental at engaging these businesses and confirming the willing sellers.


We could then confirm the best fit for our business after reviewing key information about these potential acquisitions. Once we had negotiated the deal, then Mike was very thorough in following up on key dates to complete the purchase.

We felt well supported throughout the process and Mike was there to help at every stage. We look forward to Mike helping us on our next project.
