Automobile dealers are delivering record profitability, but there has never been a time of greater uncertainty for retailers with the onset of electrification and changing franchise models.  DSMA, a leading Automotive Mergers & Acquisitions firm, invites you to a 45-minute discussion on the current trends effecting dealership valuations and buy/sell activity in Chicagoland.  The value of your business has changed in the last 6 to 12 months, so even if you aren’t interested in buying or selling, you need to understand the value of your greatest asset and what’s going to affect its value (positively or negatively) in the coming months and years.

Discussion points will include:

  • Average Goodwill Multiples by Brand
  • Average Dealership Values
  • Most Transacted Brands
  • Transaction Timelines & Reasons for Selling
  • Direction of Travel for Future Goodwill Values.

Attendees will return to their businesses with an accurate understanding of the current M&A trends and how they relate to their business.
