Prepare for the unexpected with a buy-sell agreement
Abstract: Are you prepared for the unexpected? You may not be if your dealership lacks a regularly updated buy-sell agreement. This legal contract between business owners stipulates what happens when the owners voluntarily or involuntarily part ways.

This article discusses financing sources and the importance of obtaining an accurate valuation.
