Why You Should Attend:

The value drivers may be the same for auto dealerships, but the road has changed significantly. From an Internet marketplace to fuel efficient vehicle mandates, listen in for 90 minutes on September 15th as auto dealership industry insiders and valuation experts discuss the social, political and economic factors that have had significant and profound impacts on the traditional auto dealership business model. Join us to get an inside look at how these factors affect the auto dealership owner and the value of their business in this new BVR webinar format designed for business owners. Dealers will also learn what they can do right now to maximize the value of their dealership or dealer group 5, 10, or 15 years into the future.


  • What is the importance of the relationship with the OEM/factory?
  • What are the issues facing your real estate, and how do you deal with them to maximize value?
  • What are the implications of your store's 2008 – 2010 financial performance in relationship to the value of your store?
  • How do the franchises you own impact your value?
  • How does your location impact your store's value?
  • What departments should get your attention to maximize your value?
  • How do family members in your organization impact your store's value?
  • What are the common normalization adjustments that you should be considering to help determine the value of your store?

Learning Objectives

  • Learn what value drivers are most important for auto dealerships and how the business appraisal process weights the assets of a dealership
  • Understand how values have changed with the economy and how an appraisal will forecast these changes into the future
  • Clarify the business appraisal process, how it works, what it looks for, and how a determination of value is made
