Kicking off an MBO is risky

The directors of UK listed sofware business Misys, which tried to arrange a buyout last year, were turfed out this week by the CEO.

Arranging such a deal is always tricky given
- you need secrecy initially but also need some conspirators
- you can't be doing your job fully whilst arranging your bid
- shareholders are suspicious of you (have you deflated the company performance to get a lower price)
- your susbsequent commitment to the firm if its fails is questionable
