Don Rush Director - Optical Fibre Systems

“We came across Johnsons Corporate on the internet and reached out to them. After some initial discussions their approach made sense and we decided to move forward.  Our business could be considered a niche business and they did a great job at listening to us and understanding our particular business and potential purchasers.  Now the deal has completed, there has just been nothing that I can fault with the whole process and they were an absolute pleasure to deal with… I have no hesitation to provide this reference and based on my experience I would always advocate that people use a broker.  I can now see that without professional help you have a very difficult path to tread.”

Dennis Grech, Managing Director - Geofabrics Australasia

“Scott Anderson at Johnsons Corporate was exceptional in his service to the Geofabrics business and provided a turn-key range of services as the transaction matured from target identification and then connection with the sellers, deal negotiation, deal structure and terms and ultimately, assistance with the share purchase agreement. I highly recommend Johnsons Corporate for M&A support on both the Seller and Buyer side to a transaction.”

Gary West, Director - Pumpseal Sales

“Throughout the divestment process Johnsons were always available and assisted as a healthy sounding board to navigate us along a path we had not previously walked. If you are considering a sale of your family business, we recommend talking to Johnsons Corporate. They were always available, knowledgeable, straight up and a pleasure to work with.”

Luke Clark, CEO - Canon Business Services ANZ acquires Satalyst

“In 2021 Canon Business Services ANZ (‘CBS’) engaged Johnsons Corporate to assist with identifying a pool of synergistic companies, which resulted in CBS securing a signed Offer & Acceptance with our preferred party, WA-based Satalyst. Johnson’s approach aligned with our acquisition strategy, and we were impressed with the level of professionalism and persistence provided by Johnsons. They made the search, selection and deal negotiation process a smoother experience for CBS, and we have no hesitation in recommending their services to others who are considering acquiring.”

Justin Lowe, Co-Director - ASI Solutions acquires Int Tec Solutions

“Within a very short space of time, Johnsons was able to identify and bring forward several genuine “off market” opportunities for our consideration. Once several live acquisition targets were selected, Johnsons demonstrated a strong ability to facilitate negotiations while managing vendor expectations, which culminated in our securing signed Offer & Acceptance with our preferred candidate.

Overall, the team at Johnsons made the whole process a seamless experience. Nathan and I remain impressed with the level of structure, professionalism and commitment that they brought to this engagement – even going so far as to offer post acquisition guidance to smooth the merger process.”

Georgina Talbot, Owner - Acuneeds Australia

“It was Johnsons’ prior experience in a similar deal with an overseas supplier as the acquirer that finally convinced me to engage them. In the end, they played a critical role in completing the sale. Looking back, I had no idea of the level of detail and expertise that would be demanded by things like negotiating a term sheet, undergoing due diligence, and completing legal contracts. Throughout the whole process, Johnsons managed the fine balancing act of getting the best result for Acuneeds and myself, while ensuring our relationship with our supplier and new owner stayed on track..”

Peter Schulze, Director - ITS Integrated Technical Software

“In the end, I couldn’t be happier with the results. As promised, Johnsons’ approach effectively took a niche Australian software package and brought it to the attention of developers, vendors and financial buyers from around the world. This was an eye-opening introduction to the realm of software investors, and the team at Johnsons were invaluable in helping me navigate all the different participants and their ways of looking at business. Critically, Johnsons helped make sense of the wide range of offers, negotiating pricing and terms in my favour while not losing sight of my long-term goals for the Business and the importance of a strong working relationship with the new owner.”

Derek Sheen – Director - Yellow Octopus

“Navigating the sale of Yellow Octopus to an overseas-backed private equity firm several-hundred times larger than my business was challenging, but ultimately very fruitful. However, I simply would not have been able to successfully traverse the sale process without the expertise and guidance from Johnsons Corporate. They are not simply business brokers, but first and foremost, highly experienced business advisors. They take the time to understand your business, help maximise your company valuation and leave no stone unturned in helping you find the right buyer – and ultimately achieving a great result.”

Richard Lawson & Rodney Callahan – Directors - Fluid Power Services

“As they say timing is everything, and Johnsons stayed with us every step of the way to complete the transaction. In the end it may have taken us longer than we first thought, but both of us are extremely happy with the result. We can’t recommend Johnsons highly enough. Coventry Group is a great fit with Fluid Power, and we couldn’t have gotten here without them.”

Stewart Craig – Founder - Ausdeck Group

“I guess to sum it all up, the team at Johnsons led me through the whole process and provided invaluable guidance along the way. They assisted me to overcome numerous obstacles, which were unforeseen from my perspective and managed the multiple stakeholders from beginning to end. And when all I needed was a sounding board to talk through issues or simply get something off my chest – Johnsons were always there and available.”
