A Challenging, Volatile Industry

Whether a dealership specializes in autos, heavy trucks, farming machinery, boats or recreational vehicles, business has become more challenging. Uncertainty in the economic outlook makes it difficult for businesses and consumers to plan, often resulting in delays in investments that would have otherwise been made. Increasing regulatory requirements and technological demands place further stress on management’s ability to maintain a successful, thriving dealership. This dynamic, volatile environment provides operational challenges and opportunities, highlighting the critical need for reliable, relevant financial reporting by the factory, management, shareholders and the bank.
