"We focus on a small number of high-quality businesses, meaning your business gets the attention it deserves."
Lloyds Corporate Brokers has pioneered an effective model of business brokerage. Rather than the traditional, ineffective mothod of filling a website's pages with hundreds of listings, in the hope that some might sell, Lloyds manages a limited number of selected assignments and focuses on each until it's sold.
Each broker is allocated a small number of assignments (up to six) so they can fully familiarise themselves with each one, enabling them to present your business in the best possible way. Typically a broker will not take new assignments until one has been sold.
The result is your business is handled with the care and attention required to secure you the best possible price. Confidentiality is guaranteed.
Lloyds consultants are qualified professional business brokers with a wealth of experience. They expertly guide business owners step by step through the process of selling or buying a business.

Two other major recent successes were the re-sale of businesses initially sold by Lloyds years ago. A security business sold by Lloyds 10 years prior for $150,000 was re-sold for $11m, and a scaffold business first sold by Lloyds eight years ago for $1.5m was re-sold for $15m.
Current sales under negotiation include a hydroponic nutrient fertiliser company in SA; a plastics manufacturing business in Victoria; a specialist finance business; a playground manufacturer; a rollup of five concrete pumping businesses; and a mining services business in NSW.
Buyers have come from as far afield as the UK, the USA, China, South Africa, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and Russia. Many buyers have come under the Australian Government Business Migration Scheme, bringing a high level of wealth into the country.
