M&A Advisors

Why Work With Jonas?

M&A Expertise 

Our dedicated team of M&A professionals have the knowledge and experience to manage the process efficiently and effectively. We can move quickly to close. The average deal closes around 2 months after an LOI is signed. Our parent company, Constellation Software Inc, has a strong balance sheet with no need to raise capital.

Vertical Market Software Expertise 

25+ year track record of acquiring, managing, operating and growing VMS companies across the world. With the presence of over 40 verticals in over 30 countries, Jonas has an established reputation of being a strong, global VMS operator.

Ensure the Best Future for Your Client 

When your client finds a home with Jonas Software, they have a permanent home. Jonas is different than other acquirers because we don’t sell our businesses. We offer a decentralized model for our portfolio companies to operate with the same management and staff, but with additional resources, support, and best practices.

Our Investment Preferences

As a general guideline, we are looking for the following:

Technology: We acquire software companies that sell a proprietary solution that is highly tailored to fit the needs of one or more vertical markets. Some of our businesses sell software solutions and others sell integrated systems which include hardware. Our preference is an established customer base with strong recurring revenues.

Industry: Our existing verticals include Hospitality / Hotel, Fitness, Sports & Leisure, Education, Club, Construction / Field Service, Foodservice, Salon & Spa, Health Care, Case Management, Marina Management, Moving / Storage, Legal, Attractions, etc. We are continuously expanding in our existing verticals as well as adding new verticals via acquisition.

Size: Businesses with hundreds of employees to those with a handful have found their home at Jonas.

Geography: With offices in over 10 countries and customers in many more, borders are not a barrier to acquisition.
