In a bid to expand its presence worldwide, Dealer Solutions Mergers and Acquisitions, known as DSMA, is entering Europe via a new partnership with UHY Hacker Young.

Both DSMA and UHY Hacker Young are leading M&A players in the dealership world; DSMA in North America, and the latter in the United Kingdom.

DSMA has regional offices in Calgary, ; Chicago; Las Vegas; Montreal; Nashville, Tenn.; New York; Scottsdale, Ariz.; St. John’s; Stuart, Fla.; and Vancouver.

These regional offices are supported by associate representation across all U.S. states and Canadian provinces.

Farid Ahmad, founder and CEO of DSMA, said in a press release, “We are very excited about this partnership as it will allow both DSMA and UHY clients greater access to international opportunities, opening up both the North American and European Markets.”

The partnership is the result of DSMA’s need for a connection across the Atlantic, bridging the North American and European auto markets.

David Kendrick, CEO of UHY Hacker Young, said in the press release, “The international marketplace has been hugely active over the past decade with many global automotive groups entering the UK market, as well as European and Middle Eastern investors considering opportunities in the US and Canada alike. This strategic partnership opens huge opportunity to further support this growing area of the market between UHY and DSMA.”

Now, DSMA clients will have access to dealership acquisitions opportunities in the European market, particularly in the U.K., through the expertise and network of UHY Hacker Young. The same goes for UHY Hacker Young clients in the North American market.

As part of this collaboration, DSMA encourages buyers to explore opportunities in the U.K. market, while North American dealership opportunities will be available for international buyers.
