“The SME Committee is a new initiative of the CACC and reflects the growing trade between our two countries and the opportunities that exist for SME’s seeking to expand to international markets. Our two countries’ common heritage and cultural and economic similarities make each a perfect launching point for international expansion for growth minded SMEs” -  Ross Campbell, Managing Director, The MBO Group Australia


~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

The MBO Group seems to have a unique ability to uncover interesting and worthwhile opportunities in the Canadian private company market. I have had the benefit of working with them in a variety of situations. They have always been able to capture the essence of what makes a project assignment or deal work in a very strategic way that others can embrace. With a rare ability to communicate clarity they are able to efficiently bring individuals as well as groups to understand what it takes to achieve success.
