The Macabacus short form LBO model implements key concepts related to LBO modeling, and is an excellent starting point for understanding the basics of how LBOs work. It is derived from our long form model, which itself is built upon four bulge bracket LBO models. Features include multiple capitalization scenarios; revolving credit facilities, senior debt, subordinated debt, and preferred stock financing; fixed and floating interest rates; cash sweep; and much more.
