VERTU Motors has hinted that it’s in the mood for expansion following the announcement of its latest full-year results.

The industry title Auto Retail Agenda reported that the franchised dealer group was “well-positioned to take advantage of the opportunities which will arise”.

Vertu Motors, which bought the brokerage Vansdirect for £7.5m in January 2019, announced a pre-tax profit of £23.5m with revenue up 2.8%.
CEO, Robert Forrester, commenting on the results, said:

“Given the heightened uncertainty of any forecast at this current time, it is inappropriate to provide any guidance with respect to market expectations.

“The board sees the group as well-positioned to take advantage of the opportunities which will arise. As a well-managed group with strong culture, brands and systems, the group has the ambition to grow in scale as the sector consolidates as a result of the acceleration of numerous trends. With its strong liquidity, disciplined approach to capital allocation and its partnership with manufacturers, the group looks forward with confidence.”
