Market Review: Dealer Trade vs TradeRev

14 May 18

 

"Market Review: Dealer Trade vs TradeRev

 

A key question which we are always asked is: How do we quantify the value of the Dealer Trade concept? Given this, we thought is may prove useful to you to examine a similar online auctioning model being run in North America.

TradeRev is a product originating in Canada which shares many similar qualities to Dealer Trade – being an app based, dealer to dealer vehicle auction platform.

TradeRev and its parent, KAR Auction Services Inc. (NASDAQ:KAR) released the following press release in October 2017:

KAR Goes All In on Digital – Acquires Remaining Interest in TradeRev Mobile App Auction Platform

Disruptive Technology Strengthens Company’s Digital Foundation and Accelerates Growth in Broad Dealer-to-Dealer Marketplace

October 03, 2017 09:15 ET | Source: KAR Auction Services, Inc.

“CARMEL, Ind., Oct. 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KAR Auction Services, Inc. (NYSE:KAR), has acquired the remaining interest in Nth Gen Software Inc. (“TradeRev”), a mobile app and desktop solution that facilitates real-time dealer-to-dealer vehicle auctions. KAR purchased a 50 percent stake in TradeRev in 2014 and acquired the remaining interest today for $50 million in cash and an additional $75 million over the next four years contingent on certain terms and conditions including TradeRev performance. TradeRev brings industry-leading mobile and digital technology to KAR’s portfolio of 250 whole car and salvage auctions, floorplan financing solutions, and other ancillary and related services. KAR will further integrate those capabilities into TradeRev to expand its digital business and strengthen its share in the dealer-to-dealer market (US) representing over 10 million annual transactions.”

TradeRev’s acquisition implies a valuation for its software at up to USD250 Million.

This transaction reflects the global, technology driven shift reverberating in wholesale vehicle remarketing in which Dealer Trade is at the forefront in Australia and the United Kingdom, with almost half of all Australian dealerships and over 1,500 UK dealerships registered on our platform.

We hope this proves informative you in providing some context surrounding our valuation processes and methodologies."

Jarrod Sierocki, Managing Chairman, Dealer Trade Holdings Limited, 14 May 2018.
