Jim Fitzpatrick: Hi everyone. Thanks so much for joining me on another edition of CBT News. Today I’m happy to bring into our studio here Mr. Dave Cantin, who’s the CEO of Dave Cantin Group. Thanks so much for joining us today, Dave.

Dave Cantin: Thank you. I appreciate you having me.

Jim Fitzpatrick: Sure. Your company specializes in buy, sell, and working with dealer groups large and small in this area. Very popular area nowadays, I should say, right?

Dave Cantin: Absolutely. Yes. So we have a division within Dave Cantin Group, DCG Acquisitions, that specializes in buy-sell acquisitions.

Jim Fitzpatrick: Awesome. So let’s kind of jump right in here. How did the buy-sell market look for the first three quarters of 2019?

Dave Cantin: No surprise. It’s been busy. So 2018 finished pretty busy and rolled right into 2019 and it’s been pretty consistent. I would say 2019 is going to finish off as a great year and there’s a lot already getting ready for 2020.
