What our members are saying
Paul Quirk, Amber Home ImprovementsSubscriber
Thanks to BSR I have finally ended the search for my first company acquisition. A corporate finance boutique listed ‘Project Jasper’ on BSR and it caught my eye immediately, as it seemed to tick all the right boxes, including industry niche, turnover of around £4 million and EBITDA of between £500k and £1m. The deal did take nine months to finally get signed, but I have to say I am really very excited and happy with the purchase.
Sam Pollard, Jonas SoftwareSubscriber

People often ask me where I find businesses to buy. There’s an amazing website called Business Sale Report.

The report gives us a very useful update on the opportunities in the TMT market section which we are particularly interested in and has already provided one potential deal for the group in the relatively short time we have been receiving the Report.

Since we subscribed to Business Sale Report, our M&A activity has increased several fold, and been made much more easy. Generally a very useful publication.
