This calculator is designed to give you a broad indication of the equity share you might expect from an MBO or MBI that is financed in part by a venture capitalist. It provides a guide and is not designed to replace your financial advisor. The app should help you begin to understand the very basics of how a private equity deal works, for both the management team and the private equity investor. Clearwater can accept no responsibility for the results of any decisions you take as a result of using this model. If you wish to discuss any deal-related issues, please contact us.
