What our members are saying


Paul Quirk, Amber Home Improvements


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 Software


It has been a pleasure working with the team; who provided a professional and methodological approach to the project.


Tony Cowan, Woodburn Engineering


I found the site very useful and got some really good enquiries - I would reccomend this site to anyone buying or selling a business


Jonathan Jay, Serial entrepreneur & founder of The Dealmaker's Academy


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


Tony Connor, Affinity Internet Plc


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.


Tony Bates, Gemini Corporate Finance Limited


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.
