I had been running my business for over 15 years and the whole experience of putting it up for sale was new and unknown to me. The ABBA Group team assisted by thoroughly explaining the selling process and keeping me informed of any updates every step of the way. With Anthony’s experience and the ABBA Group’s team knowledge, I felt empowered and was able to focus on making the best business decision when it came to actually selling my business.
I had used the services of Anthony Papas to secure a business which I now needed to sell, three years down the track, due to health issues. Anthony was very understanding of the situation I was in and I always felt like a priority during the process of finding a buyer to purchase my business. He took a lot of pressure off my shoulders and had I not contacted him, I doubt that my business would have sold within the two months it did and for the price I received.
My business had been on the market for close to 12 months with very little activity generated by two other brokers. An industry contact suggested I try the services of the ABBA Group and I’m very glad that I did. ABBA Group’s service was second to none. From our initial introductory meeting through to contracts being exchanged, the ABBA Group team were professional and displayed a high level of knowledge and experience in selling a business. I walked away within three months of that initial meeting with ABBA Group with the asking price I wanted and can’t thank them enough for getting the task of selling my business done quickly and efficiently.
I cannot recommend the ABBA Group team highly enough after they successfully sold my business for well over asking price. Due to the nature of my business, selling it was always going to be a complex process but with Anthony’s guidance and expertise, my best interests were always looked after. They communicated effectively and I always knew where in the process the sale was. Any challenges we encountered along the way were met with professionalism and determination and despite those challenges, Anthony and his team were able to successfully negotiate the sale of my business.
It was important to me that I find the right buyer for my business rather than rush into a sale that wasn’t the right fit. I had set up and run a specialised large-scale business within the manufacturing industry for over 20 years and it was important to me to find someone with the right knowledge, experience and skills to take it over. The ABBA Group team fully understood my position and were very careful in putting forward potential buyers – they were not after a quick sale but ensured that the buyer I eventually sold my business to was the right person to take it over successfully. I had invested many years into the business and it is satisfying to see it continue to flourish now under new ownership. If you are looking for specialised, personal service to sell your business to the right buyer, then look no further than the ABBA Group.
My family had been in the hospitality industry in New South Wales for many generations and it had always been my vision to expand nationally. I had contacts within the industry and knew how to run a hotel but I did not know how to make the move interstate. That’s when I contacted Anthony Papas at ABBA Group and it was the best decision I made. Anthony has extensive experience in helping businesses to branch out into other locations and after finding three hotels in two other states that I was interested in, he helped to not only secure those sites, but ensured I was set up with the right contacts to operate successfully. I highly recommended the services of ABBA Group if you are a business owner looking for larger opportunities in other parts of the country.
Having used the services of the ABBA Group to sell my automotive business, I had no hesitation in again contacting them to assist in securing my next business venture. They proved to have the right contacts in what can be a difficult industry to crack and were able to find me another automotive business which was a better fit. I felt well informed during the purchase of my new business and having seen how ABBA Group operates as both a seller and a buyer, I can say that I have not found a more professional and honest broker company in my 40 years in business.
I had been searching for my next large business investment for over 12 months when someone recommended I contact Anthony Papas at the ABBA Group. Within three months of meeting with Anthony to discuss my requirements, he had identified two potential businesses that suited my brief. Neither of those businesses were available on the open market so had I not contacted the ABBA Group, both opportunities would have passed me by. Upon my decision to pursue one of those opportunities, Anthony undertook the process of securing it for me, from the first meeting with the seller right through to negotiating the sale terms that I was after and finalising a sale price which I was very pleased with. I am now into my fourth year of running a very successful import / export business which was made possible by the ABBA Group.
We are a large-scale food supply business in what is a very competitive industry and had grown organically in recent years. The next step for us was to expand operations and we set our sights on the acquisition of a competitor who had already branched out into food manufacturing. I approached the ABBA Group team and following an initial meeting, they had provided a complete brief outlining the process of acquiring that business. The ABBA Group team acted on my behalf every step of the way and negotiations were, despite the competitive nature of the industry, kept friendly and above board. This has now assisted greatly in ensuring a smooth transition into our company for the newly acquired business. If you are looking to merge with or acquire another business, I highly recommend the services of the ABBA Group.
