Success Stories

Sale of Businesses


I never realised how much time and effort went into selling a business. Milestone really went above and beyond and were able to achieve a sale price in excess of my expectations. I could not have done it without them.”

“I wanted $14 million for my business and Milestone got me $31.5 million. Graham’s expertise is second to none.

“We had tried unsuccessfully to use another advisor to sell our business. We decided to give it a go with Milestone Capital Advisors and we successfully sold our business. Great outcome.

Case Study

Milestone Capital Advisors advised Cadia Group, a privately-owned regional-based distributor of civil plumbing supplies on the sale of its business to Jaybro (owned by private equity firm CPE). Having only gone to market a week prior to COVID-19 entering Australia we deliberately slowed the sale process to provide time for prospective purchasers to sure up their own business and ensure we kept prospective purchasers engaged in the sale process. Milestone Capital Advisors identified approximately 90 prospective purchasers including industry players and private equity investors to approach. This resulted in 17 information memorandums being distributed to prospective purchasers and multiple offers being received for the business. Milestone Capital Advisors was also responsible for preparing the Information Memorandum, negotiation of the term sheet, preparing the due diligence materials and project managing the due diligence process, appointment of the legal advisors, negotiation of the sale agreement, and attending to final purchase price adjustments including entitlement to an earnout payment.




We would never have been able to complete the acquisition without the help of Milestone Capital Advisors who were able to guide us through the process including helping us to negotiate an attractive acquisition price through their deep understanding of the financial metrics of the transaction and identification of issues when negotiation of the purchase price

Capital Raising


Case Study

A business owned by six senior management, with the two largest shareholders controlling 70% of the business, wished to retire and sell their interest in the business. Given the significant value of the two controlling shareholders stake in the business it was not possible for the remaining shareholders to fund the buyout. We were able to engineer a transaction whereby the four smaller shareholders increased their stake in the business to 50% whilst simultaneously bringing in an equity investor to acquire the remaining stake held by the controlling shareholders.
