SEASON 1 | EPISODE 3
A successful dealership acquisition involves much more than just matching a buyer to a seller.
On episode 3 of Transactions, Dave Cantin explains how every acquisition is a puzzle — and you have to know how to put the pieces together to make it successful. Along the way, he describes the nine members of an M&A team involved in any acquisition and how they complete the due diligence of a prospective buyer before they bring any actual buyers to the table.
“Always focus on the process, because process equals results and results equal profitability.”
— Dave Cantin
