Further selective expansion in the UK will be driven by the introduction of additional brands in areas within close proximity to existing dealerships through bolt-on acquisitions.
Motus Australia represents 20 OEMs and 21 brands through ~38 passenger dealerships, located mainly in metro areas in New South Wales and provincial areas in Victoria. Further selective expansion in the Australian market will be driven by the introduction of additional brands in areas within close proximity to existing dealerships through bolt-on acquisitions.
