            Industry Characteristics

 Current Economic Conditions

  Consumer   spending and interest rates primarily
   drive demand
  Frozen credit markets and the decrease in availability
   of financing and leasing alternatives for consumers
  Increases in fuel prices have also resulted in rapid
   changes in consumer preferences and demand
  Unemployment levels are the highest in more than
   25 years
  Other economic factors include inflation,
   discretionary income, and consumer confidence
            Industry Characteristics

 Companies in the auto dealership industry
 produce a majority of retail sales from three
 main sectors:

  New  vehicle sales
  Used vehicle sales
  Service and parts sales


  Dealerships  also offer a wide range of higher margin
   products and services, including extended service
   contracts, financing arrangements and credit
   insurance
Industry Characteristics
Porter’s Five Forces Model
               Porter’s Five Forces Model

 Rivalry
   The five largest firms own nearly 87% of the total industry

                         Auto Dealership Industry

             Penske
           Automotive
            Group Inc          Everyone Else
              11%                  13%         AutoNation Inc
           Group 1                                 25%
          Automotive
              Inc
              5%


                                                        CarMax Inc
                                                           22%
                        Copart Inc
                          24%
            Porter’s Five Forces Model

 Threat of Substitutes


 o   The majority of these threats come from outside
     the industry:
     o Airline industry (Southwest)
     o Public transportation
     o Hybrid cars
            Porter’s Five Forces Model

 Buyer/Supplier Power

 o   Fewer, but larger dealerships
 o   This should decrease competition among dealers and
     push up consumer prices on some cars by several
     thousand dollars
 o   Makes it harder for buyers to spark bidding wars

 o   Products within the industry are fairly standardized
 o   Individual car parts and services give suppliers a
     moderate level of power (only accounts for 10-15% of
     total revenues)
               Porter’s Five Forces Model

 Threat of New Entrants
  o There are several barriers to entry in the automotive industry:


  o   Substantial upfront investment is required just to be able to
      start-up
  o   Large established companies already have leverage over any
      new companies with capital and existing R/D investment
  o   Government regulations restrict competition through the
      allowance of certain monopolies
  o   Many of the distribution channels are already occupied by
      high-profile marquee companies that have vehicles tailored to
      the current needs of the buyer
  o   Recent market conditions
                   Strategy Canvas

 A strategy canvas serves two useful purposes
 for comparing a company against its direct
 competitors:

 o   Captures the understanding of the range of
     factors the industry competes and invests in (i.e.
     price, quality, marketing, differentiation, etc.)
 o   Captures the offering level that buyers receive
     across these competitive factors
