If I had entered a sale process alone, I would not have managed to get the deal that Merchantec Capital structured for me. Their guidance through the different stages of the process was imperative to getting the deal done. From a seller’s perspective, the process before Merchantec’s involvement had been disappointing as potential acquirers lacked a desirable expectation of value and our strategic focus was not aligned. It took an experienced dealmaker like Merchantec to bring a viable and profitable deal to the table.

Deon SnymanFounder and CEO of Meat Matrix Software Proprietary Limited

We had the pleasure of working with Merchantec Capital to navigate the complex process of the sale of our company. Merchantec Capital went beyond the scope of their mandate to implement this transaction and exceeded all our expectations to ensure that our goals were realised. Throughout the entire process Merchantec Capital demonstrated utmost professionalism, dedication, and strategic thinking. I would highly recommend Merchantec Capital for any corporate advisory endeavour and would welcome the opportunity to work with the team in the future.
