have used BSR before when looking for companies. I have only recently subscribed
so my experience is limited but in first month - I have identified 5 companies
of interest to one client - had two calls re a sale opportunity, one of which
has resulted in exchange of confidentiality agreements and an appointment to view
early next month"

report gives us a very useful update on the opportunities in the TMT market section
which we are particularly interested in and has already provided one potential
deal for the group in the relatively short time we have been receiving the Report".

is the most useful source I have found in the search for candidate acquisitions.
The information is normally accurate, up-to-date and succinct. The cost per worthwhile
contact is negligible, and the amount of wasted time has been very low because
the business details given, though brief, contain enough to target sensibly. I
have mainly used the principal listing, but have also had some quality response
to a Businesses Wanted ad"

work in corporate finance and am continually on the lookout for new businesses
for sale. I find that the business sale report is one of my first reference points.
I often refer to the web site and circulate the printed version to my colleagues."
Tony Bates, Gemini Corporate Finance Limited
have been actively involved in identification of acquisition targets for the past
11 years. Initially as part of a multi-national plc, then whilst involved in VC
backed buy-outs and most recently as owner of a small 'platform' business, acquired
specifically as a vehicle for growth through acquisition. I subscribe to BSR as
whilst our radar is quite broad it is inevitable we miss potential opportunities.
As such BSR is a valuable service underpinning our own research work".

firm subscribes to Business Sale Report and this has been of considerable value
