Beware of the myth of the multiple of earnings
Dealerships are franchised businesses with territorial protection, and therefore, command value regardless of their historical performance. The value of a business cannot lie solely in its track record, and the multiple cannot be determined solely by the franchise. Determining the value of an enterprise and understanding how to calculate the value of a dealership, especially the goodwill portion, is a complex process and yet, a large part of it is an art and not an exact science. Do not rely on overly simplified rules of thumbs, as these might lead to unrealistic expectations or an unfavorable outcome.
During our initial meeting, we will better understand your unique personal and business goals and help you develop a custom-tailored marketing strategy to accomplish those goals.
I have purchased over 35 new car stores in my career. In the beginning, I stayed away from brokers. Since I met the Stopnitzky family, I learned something from them…they are not looking for a sale like a broker, they are looking for a customer they can help to make an educated transaction. Their honesty, integrity and attention to detail are second to none. After doing several deals with them, I now know they only do deals one way…that is a win for the buyer as well as a win for the seller. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a car dealership.
Performance Brokerage Services, and working with Jesse Stopnitzky in particular, has been a seamless process. We have felt that they helped facilitate this transaction in a professional manner, but also allowed us – as the buyer – to ensure that we got to know the seller on a personal level. By doing this, we were able to ensure the financial aspects of the transaction were handled while also understanding the intangibles.
I would like to thank Performance Brokerage Services for their professionalism, expertise, follow-up, and responsiveness in our buy-sell transaction. They were extremely helpful in consummating the deal. If you are considering buying or selling a marine/boat dealership, please consider them.
It was a pleasure working with George Chaconas. His persistence, attention to detail, and professionalism all contributed to our deal consummating in a timely and controlled manner. It is refreshing to work with someone who is responsive to a client’s needs 24/7. I look forward to working with you and your team in the future. If you are in the market to buy or sell a Harley-Davidson or PowerSports dealership, I highly recommend George Chaconas and Performance Brokerage Services.
Dan Argiro and Performance Brokerage Services were instrumental in the purchase. They did an excellent job communicating with our team and helping throughout the process.
Pat Albero of Performance Brokerage Services reached out with an opportunity to expand our John Deere dealership business. From day one, Pat was fantastic to work with and very attentive. I certainly would not hesitate to do business with Performance Brokerage again in the future. I would highly recommend Pat Albero, Dan Argiro, and the team at Performance Brokerage.
