• Automotive


Entrepreneurs in the automotive sector are experiencing turbulent times. The market is in full swing and the revenue model is under pressure. Fewer new cars are sold. Garages experience pressure due to longer maintenance intervals, less damages and growing competition from universal car companies.

Frequently asked questions by entrepreneurs in the automotive sector include:

  • how do I, as a dealer holding company, get the most out of all my outlets?
  • do the takeover candidates add sufficiently to my business and am I able to manage such a growth?
  • will it be more sensible to sell my dealership or to transfer the business to my children?
  • what risks are involved in the contracts I conclude with the importer?
