Automobile Services

We have been fortunate to assist Foundation Automotive Corp. with all of their corporate acquisitions.  Through these transactions (and the many others we have evaluated), we have a strong sense of what makes a dealership attractive to suitors and how to effectively market these strengths to buyers.  Through an uncertain 2020, the most successful auto dealerships were able to quickly implement new digital marketing and sales procedures and had a laser focus on operational efficiencies.  Couple this with increased consumer demand and dealership profitability has been strong.

The industry is going through a state of consolidation and transition as the OEM’s roll out their electric fleets.  Change has never happened at a faster pace, call us to explore how we can help you with your company sale or acquisition.


Initial Assessment and Valuation

We sit down with each entrepreneur to understand the strengths and weaknesses of their business and provide them with a critical assessment of what their business is worth.

Marketing Strategy

We maintain a proprietary database of potential buyers (both strategic and private equity) and we craft our marketing documents (teaser, management presentation, confidential information memorandum) to each specific audience.

Buyer Identification and Approach

We work with an entrepreneur to identify and approach only those parties with the highest likelihood of transacting all while putting in place a structure that maintains the highest level of confidentiality.

Deal Negotiations

Our proven approach has us leading all negotiation discussions based on the parameters an entrepreneur provides which helps reduce the emotion in the discussions, lowers legal and other transaction costs, and leads to a stronger deal and higher likelihood of completion.

Transaction Completion

We quarterback all the paper work (the “definitive documentation” in legal terms) and make sure all facets of closing are taken care of.

Post Closing Follow-Up

Often overlooked by other advisors, but we stay in close contact post closing to make sure that any remaining obligations are considered and taken care of and any lingering questions or concerns are addressed.
