DMA provides market leading M&A transaction capability for local and multi-national companies wanting to source and acquire targets.


Acquisitions Search

DMA is regularly engaged by local and multi-national companies looking for specific acquisitions targets. DMA’s level of involvement can be varied according to your requirements. DMA can act as lead or supporting advisor, with fee structures tailored to suit.

There are many benefits to a targeted acquisition search, including gaining access to the significant number of business owners who would like to sell, but do not want to actively put their businesses on the market and expose their staff and customers to a sale process. An added benefit is that, as they are not actively on the market, you are likely to be negotiating exclusively with the owners.

By virtue of its systems and database, DMA can identify and attract business owners to the prospect of a prompt and efficient sale of their business.

Broad & Shallow vs Narrow & Deep

DMA’s targeted marketing reach is both broad and deep. Whereas many M&A advisors have limited capacity and therefore limit their targeting to a narrow base of targets they ‘go deep’ on, DMA combines this with its unique capacity to ‘go broad’ to a much wider number of possible targets.

This system is well proven and delivers superior numbers of targeted responses on each client’s opportunity, safely and confidentially.

DMA’s involvement from a purchaser’s viewpoint was the difference between a successful outcome or otherwise. Their response to queries and requests for information was outstanding. DMA is an excellent organisation and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any prospective clients
Bernard Ballantye, Castlegate VGS Pty Ltd
I just want to say thanks for your assistance pre and post contract. Your patience and guidance was apparent and I am sure that had the two owners been communicating directly, we would not have purchased the business. From a buyer’s point of view, detailed information supplied and your honest upfront approach was excellent. I am looking forward to other opportunities and do hope that we get to deal again in the future
