MBI & MBO Club
This exclusive club is operating in Poland, Romania, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Bulgaria, the Baltics, Slovenia, Serbia and Croatia.
The Club is the first and only of its kind in Central and Eastern Europe and is focusing on the issues and challenges facing ambitious managers interested in acquiring a business through a Management-Buy-In (MBI) or Buy-Out (MBO) and accessing the necessary capital. The Club is an informal network of a select group of successful directors and managers.
Enterprise Investors (EI), which is one of the largest private equity and venture capital investors in Central and Eastern Europe, has been co-managing the MBI & MBO Club since 2004. The firm has raised seven investment funds totalling €1.7 billion. To date, these funds have invested €1.2 billion in more than 100 companies across a range of sectors and have exited more than 90 investments at money multiple averages of almost 3 times.
The synergies are maximized between the clubs in Poland, Romania, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Bulgaria, the Baltics, Slovenia, Serbia and Croatia. Members in one country have the right to participate in Club meetings in the other countries. The Club provides a readily accessible regional network of high profile managers. Members have the opportunity to use this network when working on regional deals.
The Club meetings are scheduled well in advance.
