Investment Banking

The Presidio Group offers investment banking services through its Dealership Group and its Auto Retail Services teams. Presidio brings unparalleled experience in auto retail sector M&A, capital raising and strategic advice. We are an investment bank not a brokerage firm. Our clients receive thoughtful and insightful advice tailored to help them attain their individual strategic goals. Our professionals have collectively done over 215 transactions valued at nearly $15 billion.

Dealership Group

We understand that buying or selling a dealership or dealership group is often an emotional process. With Presidio by your side, you can focus on your business while we work to maximize and monetize the value you have created. We offer a complete suite of services including market assessment, financial analysis, valuation, offering materials, transaction structuring, and advising on OEM and internal/external communications.
Our team members are experts in areas vital to a full understanding of the dealership business including portfolio management, real estate, and information technology. Presidio works with its clients throughout the transaction process from beginning to end and in some cases beyond. We are here for you from the initial assessment and negotiations to working with your lawyers and accountants to the final closing.
We have handled transactions ranging from one of the largest dealership acquisitions ever in the auto retail sector to the sale of a single store. The same level of personalized, hands-on care is extended to all our clients, regardless of size.

Auto Retail Services

Automotive Retail Services (ARS) covers the many technology and service companies that are vendors to the auto retail channel. Presidio sees the importance of having relationships with companies that support the auto retail space today and those whose technology will play a role in the future of consumer mobility.
Presidio believes a paradigm shift in the auto retail industry is occurring, and we work with clients who are part of that evolution. These companies often use digital technology that enhances customer service and boosts market share for dealerships. COVID-19 has created unique opportunities for firms with digital sales and service platforms that allow for touchless delivery and other new services. We can help those companies find partners that enhance their offerings to create a market in their space. The goal of our ARS team is to foster “win-win” partnerships in the auto retail industry, which encompasses dealers and the companies that support their sales and service.

From Our Clients

Whether a large or small dealership group or a single point dealership, all our clients receive thoughtful advice tailored to meet their individual needs.

“The professionals at The Presidio Group, with their unparalleled experience in dealership transactions, were able to do something few, if any, could have accomplished; find a single buyer for our collection of 56 dealership franchises across 34 locations. Presidio also knew our family was looking for a partner that aligned with our culture and provided the best opportunities for our employees, customers, and the community.  Presidio matched us with the perfect buyer in Lithia motors and exceeded our expectations.  Our family could not be more pleased with the outcome."

David Fischer Jr.

The Suburban Group

“Building a group that included the largest Hyundai dealership in the world from the ground up was the highlight of my career.  But to continue to compete in today’s auto retail market requires ever-larger investments in technology and human capital.   Finding a strategic partner that could provide those resources while understanding how to integrate and operate such a unique group of dealerships was no small task.  The Presidio team with its strong understanding of the automotive industry and ever-changing market, key buyer relationships and unrivaled expertise delivered.  Presidio is truly the best in the business.”

Scott Fink

President, Fink Automotive Group

“Selling this unique, high performing collection of luxury dealership was a difficult decision that presented several unforeseen roadblocks along the way. The Presidio team, with its knowledge of the retail automotive market and expertise at structuring complex transactions, helped connect all of the pieces that enabled the transaction to come together.”
