Preparing for the ‘End Game’

Endgame strategies, Tartaglione explains, encompass the owner's objectives for the business, including passing it on to the next generation, selling to a competitor or bringing in a financial partner.

Bruce Tartaglione shares insights into the often-overlooked aspect of endgame strategies in the automotive aftermarket. With over four decades of industry experience, Tartaglione, a partner at Schwartz Advisors, emphasizes how important it is for proactive planning to ensure long-term success for businesses.

Tartaglione explains that endgame strategies encompass the owner’s objectives for the business, including options such as passing it on to the next generation, selling to a competitor or bringing in a financial partner. Tartaglione stresses the importance of addressing potential red flags early on, such as high overhead costs or poor market share, to maximize the business’s valuation.

For those considering financial partnerships, Tartaglione advises seeking guidance from trusted advisors. He says due diligence and strategic planning are vital, even years before owners plan to implement their endgame.

Tartaglione highlights the critical role of strategic foresight and careful planning in navigating the complexities of the automotive aftermarket. By implementing proactive endgame strategies, businesses can position themselves for sustained success when the next generation or owner takes over.
