LBO Finance

Acquisition financing using leveraged buyout (LBO) techniques

LBO financing takes various forms, including a combination of senior or mezzanine loans, subordinated bonds, and preferred shares. An LBO transaction entails particular complexity because of the conflicting interests of the parties involved.

We have extensive experience in providing legal support through all stages of an LBO transaction, including in the structuring of the transaction and the drafting and negotiating of the acquisition and financing transaction documents.

Our experienced lawyers are well-versed in the most recent developments and changes in the Japanese and international legal and regulatory environment in the LBO field, and provide practical support for the latest structuring and financing techniques.
