We are one of the most well-established business brokerages in Auckland specializing in medium to large private businesses, between $500,000 and $20 million in value.



Company Sales and Acquisitions was established in 1989 by Matt Gumbley, Matt a chartered accountant with a background in accounting, merchant banks and senior corporate rates, then became an M&A specialist with a merchant bank before becoming a very well respected business broker. Matt has recently retired. Company Sales and Acquisitions is one one of the longest established brokerages in New Zealand. We have thrived through the booms and the busts of the last three decades, and continue to broker numerous deals. In 2019, we amalgamated with Clyth MacLeod, another highly reptuable and long-established business brokerage company.


Professionalism comes from experience; from knowing how to do a job well and what is expected.

Our team also knows what is expected of them throughout the business sales process. They are easy to deal with, which is why many of New Zealand’s top accountants choose CSA when their clients want to sell. The fact that so many of their clients are repeat clients is also a great testament to this.


CSA has operated perhaps for one of the longest times of any brokerage in New Zealand, and in all that time they have been free from litigation. We offer honest feedback, honest comments and, when needed, honest criticism.

Business owners deserve a fair calculation the first time. CSA delivers honest appraisals.


Often when you are selling a business, you don’t want your staff to know until things are further down the track. We are incredibly careful about confidentiality. The marketing of a business is done anonymously and any interested buyers go through a strict confidentiality agreement first.


“You don’t stay in this industry long if you don’t operate ethically and confidentially. In the twenty six years that we’ve been in business, we’ve seen many other brokerages come and go as they didn’t realize what is most important to success.”
