    • Tuck-ins and resultant benefits of economies of scale

  • Large Dealership Groups

    • Smaller groups getting larger

    • Finding best use of cash flow is buying another dealership

 

There are multiple buyer types with large acquisition war chests and motivation. When coupled with seller motivation, the result is a robust buy/sell market.

 

  • Concerns over large and growing competition and need to grow to stay competitive
     

  • Having the majority of their net worth in a single bucket
     

  • Reluctance to invest in capital improvements
     

  • Recession. Covid. What is next?
     

  • Aging ownership population
     

  • Profits and possible higher valuations
     

Yet, acquirers are looking for specific targets. Certain attributes are looked for and the seller must be cognizant of these attractive features.
