Our Five Cornerstone Methodology Ensures your Outcome is Maximised when Selling your Business

Our difference is built on a 5 cornerstone methodology designed over 25 years of dealmaking. Each stone is an imperative step towards success.

Our Methodology

Our M&A model aims to deliver the best result, backed by a proven track record – and our methodology is based on five cornerstones:


We aim to facilitate an exit that is both discreet and strategic, for the best possible return

Successful business owners are usually highly skilled at running their business –  But when it comes to selling, outside help can be invaluable. We work with entrepreneurs exiting their business, and we aim to maximise their exit value with respect and discretion, while at the same time delivering an excellent business to the buyer.

As an entrepreneur, you’ve probably spent a large part of your life building your business – so when it’s time to capitalise on that energy and effort, we strive to maximise your return on investment, while at the same time finding a buyer who will respect your hard work, keep on your staff and minimise any disruption to customers.

Our principal dealmaker, Tony Wiese, has successfully concluded over thirty M&A transactions

You have direct access to 25 years of experience and proven deal closures. So confident of success are we that if Tony agrees to take on your M&A deal there will be no upfront fees, no retainers, no hourly rates but only a success fee payable on agreed milestones.


Exit strategies

Your exit could take several forms, depending on issues like timings and the desired level of continued association after a sale. Exit strategies may include one or more of the following options:

  • A trade sale to a strategic Buyer
  • A merger with a complementary business, followed by a trade sale to a strategic Buyer
  • A leveraged management buy-out (MBO) by key management or family members
  • A strategic private equity investor or fund, partly cash-out, followed by a full exit
  • Taking the company public to the ASX via an Initial Public Offering (IPO).
