ABC of Jonas: What Sets Us Apart in the M&A Landscape

At Jonas Software, we have years of experience in acquiring industry-specific software companies. And we have a specific way of working which we believe sets us apart and helps us to help each and every one of our businesses succeed. 

So, what makes Jonas different? It’s as easy as ABC…

Autonomy

We understand that one common fear of companies looking into acquisition is the misconception that the buying company will completely take over and have no interest in preserving your company’s unique identity.

Instead, we strive to do the complete opposite, preserving your brand, products, and services, whilst allowing business owners to work with a large amount of autonomy. We don’t believe in taking over the day-to-day operations of our companies, and instead, our decentralized structure means that we respect the expertise of those who already know the ins and outs of their specific industry and utilise this to take the business from strength to strength.

 

Buy and hold forever

We differ from other businesses in that at Jonas, we buy companies for life, we’ve never sold a company and we have no intention of doing so.

We buy and hold companies forever and strive to be a great permanent home for companies that join the Jonas family, offering our support whilst leveraging a business owner’s unique knowledge and experience to make the business even stronger.

Whilst we acknowledge all business sales will be different, at Jonas we believe that we can offer more than just financial security, with our benefits encompassing a depth of business knowledge and breadth of experience. Your employees are important to the smooth running of the business, and that’s why they are important to us too, ensuring that not only does the business get a rosy future, but the employees do as well.

 

Culture of sharing best practices

Although autonomy is a key part of the way we do things, this doesn’t mean that you’re in this on your own. We recognise the challenges of running a business alone and believe our extensive network of software business leaders is an invaluable resource. After all, who could be better to bounce ideas off and share previous experiences with than a group of like-minded individuals who have all faced their own challenges running their business’. We actively encourage the sharing of best practices across Jonas and CSI (our parent company) - functional summits, quarterly strategy meetings, and annual academies are just a few of the ways we do this.

 

So, it really is that simple. Want to learn more about the unique way we do things? You can read more about our approach here.
