February 8, 2022

NEW YORK–()–The Dave Cantin Group (DCG), one of the world’s largest automotive dealership M&A firms, announced it closed more than $1 billion in total automotive dealership acquisitions and completed approximately 40 total transactions in 2021, for an astounding 40 percent increase in total acquisitions value.

During a year that plagued the automotive sector with supply chain issues and ever-shifting sales cycles, DCG exceeded expectations continuing to demonstrate national influence on the competitive auto dealership industry. In addition to high marks in total acquisitions, DCG increased its market share more than 10 percent in its automotive acquisitions client base, and CEO Dave Cantin anticipates the success to continue.

“DCG demonstrated first class services in 2021 with more than a billion dollars in total acquisitions,“ said CEO Dave Cantin. “DCG is an industry-leading organization with high expectations and an incredible team of experts. We’re excited to carry this momentum into 2022 and create more value for our clients.”

DCG leveraged decades of industry experience and innovative problem solving to drive results in 2021, increasing their total acquisitions by more than 35 percent in a pandemic-inflicted year. With the auto dealership industry in high demand, Cantin feels strongly that 2022 will bring even greater results, projecting approximately $1.5 billion in value for acquisitions.

“With competitive opportunities and approachable evaluations, we’re confident that DCG will complete around 50 M&A transactions this year,” said Cantin.

Also in 2021, as part of Cantin’s pledge to donate a percentage of every transaction to resources in that local area, more than two dozen communities benefited from DCG’s philanthropic arm DCG Giving.

“The more success we have, the more opportunities we can create to benefit the community. Giving back is a core principle of DCG and we’re always looking to support community efforts that make a difference.”
