Car Dealer Business Plan, Financial Model, and Pitch Deck – Case Study
This case study is about an automotive dealer who wanted to acquire an investor based on a concrete business plan, financial model, and pitch deck. The mentioned car dealer company belonged to UAE and Saudia Arabia. The biggest problem faced by our client was the professional fulfillment of each and every aspect to be filled into the template provided by the investor. This template was based on a comprehensive automotive dealership business plan.
The company’s business plan and financial model are presented in this case study so that you can have a better understanding of its financial status and potential investment.
The five main objectives of this project were to:
- First, develop a business plan, financial model, and pitch deck for the client.
- Present the information as per the template provided by the client’s investor.
- Finally, provide the investor with all the available information regarding the company and its product.
- Evaluate the current automotive market in the mentioned areas and conduct various analyses, including SWOT analysis, competitors’ analysis, etc.
- Conduct Details Market Trend Analysis, Supply and Demand, and Competitor Analysis with TAM, SAM, and SOM
The client’s biggest challenge was acquiring a comprehensive business plan and a supported financial model for 5 years for international investors. In addition, the client’s business plan was not a template or a sample; it was completely customized to fit the investor’s requirements. Therefore, filling out the required information into the template required a lot of effort. We also customized the financial model and pitch deck for the client. Previously, the company had an existing relationship with the investor, making the entire project more challenging.
The solution for the project was to create a framework that would cover all the aspects of the project and the client’s requirements. It was also required from the Oak Business team to come up with the exact statistics, facts, and figures of the existing automotive market in UAE and Saudi Arabia.
