Our story

Founded by M&A professionals who met during an MBA Mergers & Acquisition module at Cass Business School and realised that the M&A transaction process could be greatly improved, especially for Small and Medium Businesses.

Small Businesses are disproportionately impacted by the current M&A transaction process, with lower valuations, higher buyer demands and transactions taking longer to complete.

The founders realised the solution would be a digital M&A Platform using advanced cloud technology to provide secure virtual auctions, deal room, document workflow and automation to reduce the overhead of M&A for company owners and our M&A advisors.

Six months later they launched the world’s first Online M&A Marketplace, enabling sellers and buyers to review, negotiate and complete M&A transactions in record time. 

Our Team

The team at M&A Deal Platform is drawn from blue chip corporates and existing Corporate Finance advisory firms. 

We do not believe in on the job training for deal leaders at our clients' expense and therefore only employ individuals who already have relevant experience and all the necessary skills.

Some of the companies that the team has gained experience in are: KPMG, Whitbread, Livingstone Guarantee, Capita, Serco, WPP, T-Mobile, Network Rail and SunGard.

Sector specialisms include; Engineering, Manufacturing,  Digital Transformation Services, Financial Services, Transport, F&B, Environmental and Events.

And our digital M&A platform, branded as Precision.Market, uses advanced cloud technology to provide secure virtual auctions, deal room, document workflow and automation to reduce the overhead of M&A for company owners and our M&A team.
