SEASON 1 | EPISODE 6: Synergies and Consolidation in 2022 || Transactions with Dave Cantin

“When a store becomes available in the right market, forget about price. It’s one word and one word only, and that’s opportunity.”

If there’s a phrase to sum up today’s episode, it’s “positive outlook.”

Dave kicks off the conversation by describing how he chooses a positive outlook as often as possible, in any situation, to stay on the right path, take the right actions, and guide his team toward consistently positive outcomes in dealership transactions.

Then he delves into the positive forecasts for the M&A market in 2022 (in automotive and across all industries), including why a major contributing factor is that people know the good times won’t last forever — so they’re striking while the iron is hot.
