Sale Leaseback: Auto Dealership Group Midwest

In September 2022, a major Midwest auto dealership group completed a sale leaseback transaction for the majority of its real estate portfolio with a value of $95 million. The sale included several automotive dealerships and properties. The transaction allowed the group to immediately realize the proceeds from the sale to fund dealership growth and development in different states throughout the Midwest. The sale leaseback transaction allowed them to gain liquidity without disrupting its operational efficiencies. It also provided the group  with greater financial flexibility in the form of an immediate influx of capital. Through the sale, the group was able to refinance existing debt while also reducing certain covenants relating to leverage and other financial issues. This allowed the group to operate more efficiently without increased restrictions placed on them by lenders and other creditors.
