INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Buy-In Management Buyout - BIMBO'

This option provides the best of both worlds of a buy-in and a buyout. For one thing, you can expect that the transfer will be made much more efficiently, because the existing members of management are already familiar with the business that is taking over. The management buy-in most likely will bring in outside individuals with a certain expertise lacking in the organization and will benefit the firm greatly.

However, a BIMBO may not be so perfect. Tension may arise between the firm's employees and new members of management. If the employees feel threatened by the new management, the firm's performance may decline.
