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 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 major factor in the ongoing success of the business."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"Mike quickly grasped the nuances of our hybrid capital raising requirements for a startup venture in the software arena. Oasis 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. Great result."
"Oasis M&A 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 M&A’s 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."
