Why You Should Attend

The auto industry has been perhaps the easiest segment of the economy to keep track of these past few years. Between bail-outs, recalls, and industry innovations it's been hard to miss the changing fortunes of these titans of industry. What has been difficult, however, is quantifying how these changes affect the end of the supply chain: the dealer.

In "Valuing Auto Dealerships" expert appraisers Jim Alerding and Kevin Yeanoplos will join Carl Woodward, one of the nation's leading experts on automobile dealership accounting, valuation, and operations. From new car sales through service and repairs, these three will lead you through the ins and outs of this ubiquitous and challenging valuation assignment.

Topics to be covered

  • Classic considerations in automobile dealership valuation
    • Operations and management techniques of auto dealerships
    • Accounting principles of the industry
  • Emerging challenges
    • The current market environment
    • Forced closures of franchises from auto makers & the resulting automobile market
    • "Cash for clunkers" and the impacts of related government programs
    • What is the value proposition and "formula" in today's economy
    • Liquidation and sales challenges
  • A view into the future of the auto dealerships
    • Stock of auto dealers
    • Treatment of expenses
    • Ability of surviving dealerships to weather future economic turbulence

Learning Objectives

  • Learn how outside factors have affected auto dealerships, their ability to operate, and their future prospects
