BDO Canada Transaction Advisory Services (TAS) is pleased to announce the sale of Manley Motors Limited (“Manley”) and the concurrent sale of its Lindsay, Ontario real estate to Williamson Chrysler Limited. Located in Lindsay, Ontario, Manley Motors operates a FCA dealership, selling new and used cars and trucks and performing routine maintenance and repairs. Hilton Manley founded what was then known as Manley’s Garage in 1933, and officially changed the name to Manley Motors in 1937. Family-owned and operated for more than 85 years, the company built an unwavering reputation in the Lindsay and surrounding community through its commitment to providing customers with a high quality, individually tailored sales and service experience. BDO Canada’s TAS Team acted as the exclusive financial advisor to Manley Motors, assisting the company’s owners throughout the entire transaction process.
Deciding to sell our family owned and operated business of 87 years was an emotional roller coaster. There was a lot of hand holding throughout the process and the BDO team was with us every step of the way. With their knowledge and experience within the industry, they were able to find us the right buyer, one that was well aligned with our family values and one that would fit well within our community. The BDO team exceeded our expectations in every way possible. – Jayne Manley
Congratulations to both Manley Motors and Williamson Chrysler.
