SMERGERS in the News
Silicon India names SMERGERS as brand of the year 2015 in Investment Banking Platform Category.
I’m a qualified Chartered Accountant and the Chief Financial Advisor of an IT Group with presence in India, US and Canada. As part of our strategic goals to invest in high growth verticals we started connecting with business opportunities on SMERGERS. We were happy with the quality of businesses we connected with, so we got actively engaged and connected with about 15 more businesses on SMERGERS. Most of them responded immediately with details for our evaluation. One of the businesses was a good fit and we have invested in it and we are in talks with a few more.
Director, Suma Soft Pvt Ltd, Pune
I'm an NRI based in the South Pacific. I was actively looking to buy out a restaurant business in India particularly in Maharashtra. SMERGERS had attractive opportunities presented in a neat, transparent and efficient manner. I could easily shortlist and identify good opportunities based on SMERGERS Ratings. While necessary support was provided at all stages, SMERGERS enabled us to interact directly with quality entrepreneurs. I successfully purchased one restaurant recently and highly recommend SMERGERS to anybody looking to invest in or buy Indian businesses.

SMERGERS is platform which aids in providing various business choices for buyers and investors to fulfill individuals needs. It is informative to know financial data of businesses which helps in identifying healthy business opportunities among listed. Team by itself is proactive in responding to queries and in understanding customer needs. Through SMERGERS I was able to complete my first deal and will continue my association for any prospective take over in expanding my diversified business investment portfolio.

VSPL has an ongoing relationship with SMERGERS, and it has been a very good association. SMERGERS has played a major role in VSPL's inorganic growth strategy in India. They have been continuously providing us with opportunities which are thoroughly screened before they are presented to us. They also have good tested resources for due diligence. We would highly recommend them to any company who is looking to acquire and grow inorganically in India. We look forward to continue to work with them to acquire organizations in the IT/ITES space.
General Manager, Visionet Systems Inc., Bangalore
I was actively seeking buy-out/partnership opportunities in South India. I had bought a minority stake in a Chennai based business which I had found on SMERGERS. Now, I’m using SMERGERS platform again to connect with other interested investors to exit my investment.
Individual Investor, Kochi
We are a BSE listed software company looking to acquire small and medium sized software/IT companies to grow inorganically. We registered on SMERGERS to find and connect with companies for sale. The platform was simple to use and we could easily find, evaluate and connect with quality businesses. We recently acqui-hired a software development team in Hyderabad and we will continue to use the platform for future acquisitions.
Executive Director, Saven Technologies Limited, Hyderabad
While we grew at our own pace & saw many start-ups raise funds very easily these days, we were not sure of getting an investor for our decade old Telecom Software Solutions Company. Our traditional approach met with no success & then we discovered SMERGERS sometime back and gave it a try. What makes SMERGERS unique is the global network, within few weeks of registering we had a good number of introductions from all over the world. The quality of introductions are far superior than any of the competing platforms that we had used. SMERGERS team supported us post the introduction as well and the best part was that we closed the deal with the first person we met on SMERGERS.
Co Founder & Director, Avis e Solutions Pvt. Ltd., Delhi
Thanks to SMERGERS, I found an investor from across the globe for my company in just 15 days. Having got multiple offers from investors, I chose the one who I could work with easily and gave us a better valuation. With the help of SMERGERS network partners the legal formalities were completed and the deal was closed in 4 months.
Managing Director, GK Culinary - Abbey Road, Gurgaon
I have enjoyed my time on SMERGERS, I found it to be pleasant, professional and a great introduction to some very interesting people. Although I did not find the investor i was looking for, since we managed to find funding elsewhere, I would absolutely recommend this company and the people behind it.
Founder, Red Chili Rewards, Singapore
Seeing an increase in the number of people transacting online, I built an online coupon website and got affiliated with many e-commerce companies including Flipkart and Jabong and over 150 Online stores. Though the business was growing, I wanted to sell my website since I switched to another domain. I registered on SMERGERS to find buyers. I was introduced to more than 10 buyers and I closed the deal within 4 months. I recommend SMERGERS to any business which is looking to get acquired.
Founder, CashVasool, Mumbai
I ran an IT company which had built top notch products for the education and healthcare industry, but had marketing challenges. I was looking for strategic buyers who could acquire and grow my company. I registered on SMERGERS and connected with several interested parties. I connected with a very good IT firm who finally acquired our products and team partially. The buyer was very supportive and showed genuine interest in addressing our concerns during the transaction. I recommend SMERGERS to all SME business owners.
Founder and CEO, NeoLabz, Hyderabad
I do must say, I am really positively surprised with your service. Much better with the matchmaking and notifications than what I have seen so far. I have connected with good investors & buyers on SMERGERS who were interested in our mandates. Coincidentally, one of them even happened to be a German business. I was not able to find as many leads on any other platform, including the local ones. I look forward to continue using SMERGERS for future deals.
