Our Acquisition Strategy

“We expect acquisitions to continue to generate outstanding returns for our shareholders, an exit strategy for owner- operators, and future growth opportunities for their associates.

In our markets, the best competitors have generally been a subset of the owner-operated dealerships – those operated by individuals who have chosen not to borrow excessively, focus on getting a sound automobile to their customers on reasonable terms, and provide both friendly service and disciplined collections. We believe we have developed a successful acquisition template which works for both parties.”

A Note From Our Director of Acquisitions

“Exit strategies are a challenge for dealers in our industry. The acquisition of my company [Taylor Motor Company] by America’s Car-Mart was a very positive experience for my team in Illinois. As an acquired dealer myself, I’m in a unique position to talk to other dealers and share my personal experiences. I’m excited to start talking to good operators who are interested in hearing about exit options that may exist for them as we continue to expand the Car-Mart brand.”
