What our clients say

"In late 2010 we set out to attract a majority investor for our professional and technical services business. Though we understood the need for an exit strategy, we did not understand the process of attracting an investor or selling the business. Oasis M&A was selected on the basis of their well-defined approach, track record and openness. Mike and the Oasis team’s professional approach and level of effort in identifying, gating and meeting potential buyers was impressive. Five years on, our majority shareholder is a major factor in the ongoing success of the business."
Jeff Bugden
Managing Director, KoBold Group
"Where Oasis are very good is being able to work outside the box to improve the deal through the negotiation. On more than one occasion, I thought I was presented with a great deal, but Mike helped ID some trap doors. My sale was extraordinary. We got more than we expected, as we were able to successfully argue the power of our brand and capability rather than financials – which were suffering post mining boom collapse."
Anthony Moorhouse
Founder and Director of Strategy, Dynamiq
"The challenge for Oasis was the fact that we had one major supply company based overseas with verbal supply agreements in place and to convince a potential buyer that those agreements would continue with an approved buyer. We were very happy with the professional and methodical approach of Oasis to find a selected buyer, which achieved a successful outcome within 10 months of engagement. We found Warwick and the team very helpful and very easy to deal with and can only recommend him and his team."
Joe F Blum
Major Shareholder, Intervac
"We entrusted Oasis M&A to assist with the sale of our Australian business in 2014. Michael McGrath’s extensive experience running his own business, coupled with his strong business acumen, made the sale process run seamlessly. From the investigatory stage, through to the due diligence and contract negotiations, Mike and the team offered practical advice and maintained a strong line of communication every step of the way. The team’s service levels were equivalent to any top tier M&A firm, without the exorbitant fee structure. We would certainly use Oasis M&A again in the future."
Ariana La Tessa
Owner, Hypoxi Australia
"Mike quickly grasped the nuances of our hybrid capital raising requirements for a startup venture in the software arena. Oasis M&A not only identified a highly relevant suitable partner, but provided immediate access, resulting in a very high level of engagement. From start to finish, the outcome was delivered inside 6 weeks. Including cash settlement. Unheard of. Legend. Thanks again Mike, and to the team at Oasis M&A. Great result."
Darren Beale
Founder, Solidtec Solutions Pty Ltd
"Oasis Partners have been our business advisers for over 4 years at a board and operation level. From the outset, guidance started with Oasis providing in-depth advice on business strategies to address the significant challenges posed by changing market conditions in the IT hardware, software and services industry. The outcome was a well developed business plan for the future. Since then we’ve not looked back, and Oasis Partnerss ongoing operational advice in the business has helped us tune these strategies to maximise revenue, profitability and shareholder value to deliver a more predictable future."
Robert Silver
CEO, Rivium
“We’ve worked closely with Michael McGrath and the Oasis team in an advisory capacity for some time now, and have enjoyed the frank, fearless and above all pragmatic approach they have taken to our relationship. We would wholeheartedly recommend the Oasis team to any small to medium size enterprise undertaking the sometimes difficult transition to more structured corporate governance processes. Collectively we have relied upon their expertise and guidance in establishing a board, implementing more rigorous financial reporting processes, recruiting high level executives and crystallising our longer term business strategy. The support and advice we have received is grounded in real-world business experience across a range of industries, and has proven to be invaluable to our organisation”.
Barry Jarred
Director, Price Attack
"Oasis quickly gained a deep understanding of our industry and helped shape our short and long term strategic focus, playing a pivotal role in evolving our leadership, finance, and management. We have been impressed with the measurable differences they have made over the past 10 years, along with their ability to distil complex issues into actionable insights and apply them to everyday business. I have personally recommended them to many other business owners looking to improve their business focus and gain a partner in creating value."
Brendan Green
CEO, GCG Health Safety & Hygiene
"Michael and the Oasis team demonstrated a wealth of experience by delivering highly practical guidance during the preliminary negotiation phase, coupled with the requisite technical advice during the later phases of the acquisition process."
Thomas Haines
CEO, Practice Insight
“We have been working with Oasis for coming up 2 years and their guidance has been invaluable."
Shane Gates
Managing Director , Impact Multimedia
“Oasis Partners, has been a strategic & fundamental part of HMWS progression and growth over the past few years, providing high level input & guidance, emphasising the requirement to keep the long term in sight. Michael & team provide data & advice on market size & market opportunities, financing options, and timing of when to make strategic growth-related changes.”
Kevin Woodbine
Managing Director, Harness Master
“Since engaging with Oasis Partners, Michael’s input has had a direct and measurable impact. He has been of great assistance in our journey to corporate/financial maturity and his approach is one of his strongest attributes – never shying away from a difficult conversation. Historically, we have run a good business – Oasis Partners has been instrumental in guiding us on how to manage a company.”
Rob Allan
Business Owner, Design and Engineering Business
“We met with Mike and the team at Oasis who quickly identified that we needed some guidance to take our business to the next level. Oasis developed a plan to assist us to diversify our business, identifying other sectors and markets both here and overseas. Their knowledge and understanding of business and finance were invaluable and their approach was both helpful and professional. We are so grateful for their input."
Peter Gordon, David Astone
Founders & Directors, Design to Production
“Oasis negotiated a much better outcome for us than we would have been able to by ourselves, which was well worth their fee. We would use them again if we were contemplating a similar transaction.”
Lachlan Sedsman
Managing Director, Wageloch
"We have worked with Mike and the team at Oasis Partners for over 7 years, they have become an invaluable part of the growth and repositioning that has gone on at Romar. Oasis always does what they say, are practical in their approach, helping with both strategy and the oversight of execution. Our board continues to function well and is aided by Mikes valuable non-executive input which is both professional and impartial and focused on creating value for thew shareholders. I have benefited personally from their input especially in how I could step back from the day to day, helping me hire a CEO and introducing some governance, which has allowed me to complete a PHD and work part time! I would have no hesitation in recommending Mike and his team to other owners and indeed have done on several occasions."
Neil Wilson
CEO, Romar Engineering
“I enjoyed working with Oasis M&A in the sale of our company, and they enabled me to concentrate on running the company for all except the last couple of months of the sale process. We received a good price, and the company has continued to grow and look after our customers and staff - something that was important to me. During the sale process, the company management and I were in overall control of the sale process, and I did not feel that we were being "railroaded" at any stage, but received good advice based on Oasis' previous experience.”
Tim Shaw
“We have been working with Oasis Partners and Mike now for over 7 years. When I met Mike, we had a successful business but needed guidance on how to take it to the next level. We identified vulnerabilities when it came to growth, corporate governance, and risk management. Mikes deep engagement within our business and personal mentoring of myself have greatly assisted me and the Emerald Group. Our accomplishments since Mike joined have significantly exceeded our expectations.”
Stuart Edgely
Managing Director, Emerald Planet
