The National Business Advisor Alliance (NBA) seeks to become the most recognised and trusted M&A transaction advisor network in South Africa. We not only enable smooth business transactions but also advise entrepreneurs on issues ranging from tax information to legal matters.
Originating in the European Union as a consultant firm for cross-border transactions within the European Union, NBA's parent company CBA realised that many of its clients could and wanted to benefit from possibilities of selling their businesses outside Europe.
To make this a possibility, CBA began recruiting experienced business dealers from around the world. Today, these recruits are now part of our international network of 232 advisors on five continents.
Over all, this became a win-win situation: CBA gained a global team of M&A experts, while the the professionals gained access and connections to similar specialists around the world.
In time, many international companies and professionals witnessed the business opportunities that CBA presented, and they joined CBA as Associates. In response, CBA has organically built the largest network of international M&A associates from which NBA and its clients benefit.
In the process of CBA expanding its network and strengthen national ambitions, in founded Network Business Brokers (NBA) as pilot, before expanding its national lines further.
The CBA/NBA system brings with it changes to the industry. Noticing the industry’s unfair consulting fees that prevent start-ups and mid-market companies from obtaining the business consulting they would need to sell or buy businesses nationally or across borders, NBA has done away with fees for initial consulting. We are not business brokers, nor are we standard M&A intermediaries. That is, NBA does not charge for initial consultation provided. That is free. We are only charging for special transaction-related advice for mandated business opportunities, and other services required to close a transaction, such as business evaluations, market research, or special M&A services during business transactions. We do charge one-time fees at cost for such services.
We are success-oriented for your benefit and for ours - you only pay us a success fee when your business transaction is successfully closed.
For technology transfer mandates we charge a basic mandate fee, together with a success fee on results achieved.
If you are interested in buying or selling a business, finding partners for special business transactions, or joining our alliance; you could stand to gain in the following ways:
Even large-size businesses do not have the internal legal experts they need for successfully completing a national or an international transaction.
Legal support and tax advice are absolutely necessary in carrying out a national business transaction, even more so with an international one.
Obtain special business opportunities through leveraging our network of national and global global Advisers.
Businesses with eyes for expansion come to us in search of partnerships.
Our goal is to find someone like you to assist these businesses with their aim of expanding nationally. Whether it be a joint venture, start-up, technology transfer project or any other form of growth (e.g., corporate real estate), you're likely to find the partnership you need in our database.
