A fully customizable excel LBO model to assess the debt level your firm can take in a deal & expected investor returns

Why waste time making your own Leveraged Buyout Model?

A leveraged buyout model shows what happens when a private equity firm or private investors acquire a company using a combination of equity and debt, and then sells it in 3-5 years. Leveraged buyouts are similar to normal M&A deals, but in an LBO you assume that the buyer is a financial investor and sells the target in the future.
