  • Turnover in excess of £21m in YE23, with an adjusted EBITDA of £640k.
  • Extensive refurbishments to the sites disrupted business during YE23. However, our client expects to see growth in YE24 that will place turnover back on track to meet that of YE22. 
  • Forecast of £32m for YE24 with an adjusted EBITDA in excess of £1.6m. 
  • Extensive net asset value in excess of £2.2m. 
  • Strong pipeline of 85 new car orders and 40 Motability orders for this financial year in place. 
  • Premises valued in excess of £2.5m. 
  • Our clients suggest that marketing the company’s service operation across adjacent available territories could increase its audience by over 400%. This could, in turn, increase service revenue by 20% immediately, and by 50% within two years.
