The Dave Cantin Group (DCG) sought to become the fastest-growing and largest automotive mergers and acquisitions firm in the United States during 2018.
And DCG believes it delivered on that vision based on the results the company reported this week.
DCG completed 2018 with 39 acquisition listings valued at more than $1.5 billion. The listings cover more than 18 automotive brands, including Audi, Cadillac, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover and Infiniti.
“Our experienced management team has worked tirelessly over the last 12 months to make DCG the top M&A firm serving auto dealers in the country,” said Dave Cantin, DCG’s founder and chief executive officer. “Their efforts have positioned DCG as the industry’s go-to mergers and acquisitions firm.”
Cantin said that DCG’s 2019 goals include offering more than 50 acquisition listings with a valuation of more than $2 billion. The company is expanding its team in 2019, seeking to add additional M&A experts in all five regional offices and its headquarters in New York, to handle the volume of activity and interest in working with DCG.
Cantin’s company currently offers a broad range of professional services, including the management of:
—Simple buy/sell acquisitions
—Private equity transactions
—Minority investor programs
DCG will exhibit at the upcoming National Automobile Dealers Association Show beginning on Jan. 25 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. The firm’s space will be at No. 7553W, located in the center’s West Hall on Level 2.
