We understand that as a prospective client, you need to feel comfortable that we have the skills and experience to sell your business – and one of the most important markers of our business broking ability is our track record.

While some business brokers list dozens or even hundreds of businesses for sale, at Jamieson we actively focus on a small number of mid-market sized business sale, merger and acquisition transactions.

This means that at any one time, we will be actively working on up to only 10 quality businesses – and we achieve a successful result in almost every case.

Often we are working on projects under the radar of a visible marketing campaign, depending on each client’s requirements – for example, where we have an agreed strategy targeting highly specific sales, merger and acquisition opportunities.

The table below provides an indicative representation of some of our business sales and purchase transactions, the time taken to complete the transaction, and the final sale price achieved. You will find additional information with examples of multiple sales in particular industries in our Business Sales Examples and Businesses for Sale sections
