We were appointed Administrators of Southgate Motor Group, a £40 million turnover motor retailers and had Peugeot, Mitsubishi and Subaru across seven sites on the South coast. The Group faced cash flow difficulties and poor trading, mainly due to the economic climate.
Our team of specialists managed to negotiate the reopening of two of the seven sites that were initially closed. Motorwell Ltd agreed a new lease with the landlord and bought the company assets on one of the sites and also employed former Southgate staff.
