David Roberts, Managing Director and Automotive Services Group Team Leader

Thank you for taking the time to read about us.  We recognize that rapid consolidation, increasing competition and accelerating demands for growth capital are creating both opportunities and challenges for automotive businesses.

We help automotive business owners plan how to successfully navigate a rapidly-changing market while building maximum value for their businesses.   When the time comes to grow or sell we use our relationships, knowledge and processes to help our clients evaluate and achieve successful transactions for owners, their employees and their partners.

We would like to welcome Nancy Rollins, our newest Managing Director, dedicated to providing our full set of M&A services to Dealership owners.

With over 50 years of experience in the automotive sector with dozens of successful transactions and nine MSO and jobber transactions in the last 18 months, our clients have trusted us to deliver results.  Contact us anytime to talk about your business, industry consolidation or the market in general.

We represent owners, to help you identify and achieve your goals:

  • We help you evaluate your business and its position in your local market and the industry.
  • We advise you on how to prepare your business for sale or raising growth capital.
  • We help you find multiple bidders for an acquisition or new capital.
  • We help you structure the deal; from asset or stock purchase, cash or debt, goodwill purchases, earnouts and more.
  • As entrepreneurs, we know the importance of taking care of your employees.
  • Advising you on structuring the real estate leases or sale associated with your business.
  • We recognize that transitioning after a sale and retirement issues are important components in your decision.

Dealership Owners

Nancy Rolland has spent more than 20 years working with entrepreneurs, advising them on buy and sell side transactions.  During her tenure with AutoNation, the nation’s largest automotive retailer, she closed multiple transactions adding $800M in annual revenues, including one of its largest ever single transactions of 13 stores and $500 million.

While working with dealers of varying sizes, Nancy identified a clear need for professional representation for even the smallest dealers.  Because selling a business is typically a once in a lifetime event, dealer business owners need to have the right team in place to achieve their goals and optimize their outcomes.  That team should include partnering with a licensed, full service M&A firm like FOCUS.  For a confidential discussion about your business and your needs, contact Nancy or her colleagues, David Roberts and Rick Thomas.
