Our Strategy

Overview Of The Business

Vertu Motors was formed in late 2006 to acquire and consolidate UK motor retail businesses. A senior management team, with a wealth of expeirence within the sector, was put in place and on 27th March 2007 the Group acquired the 13th largest motor retailer in the United Kingdom, Bristol Street Motors. With the addition of further acquisitions, Vertu Motors is now the 5th largest motor retailer in the United Kingdom.

In addition to improving the core business, the group's strategy is to grow shareholder value by:

  • Acquiring further businesses, both currently profitable and turnaround opportunities representing both existing manufacturer partners and those which may be new to the Group.
  • Improving the profit contribution from the significant number of businesses acquired or opened in recent years.
  • Continued review of the Group's portfolio in terms of franchise representation and appropriate allocation of capital, to identify future opportunities to make changes to maximise return on investment.
