    BUFFALO, N.Y.July 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ACV (Nasdaq: ACVA), the leading digital automotive marketplace and data services partner for dealers and commercial partners, today announced its acquisition of MAX Digital, a pioneer in automotive data and merchandising products and best known for its flagship inventory management system (IMS) platform FirstLook. The transaction is valued at $60 million. MAX Digital's SaaS-based software products enable dealers to accurately price wholesale and retail inventory while maximizing profit on each vehicle sold by leveraging predictive analytics informed by machine learning.  

    "ACV's digital-first approach has empowered thousands of dealers to buy, sell and value their vehicles online with confidence," said ACV CEO George Chamoun. "This acquisition builds on our commitment to help dealers enhance their bottom-line with tools that enable efficient, informed decisions powered by digital intelligence. We are thrilled to be able to offer MAX Digital's services to our existing dealer partners."

    This acquisition allows ACV to expand its suite of digital capabilities to offer new inventory and pricing guidance, merchandising and sales enablement tools that will help dealers run their businesses more efficiently and profitably. MAX Digital joins ACV's growing network of brands that includes ACV Auctions, ACV Transportation, ACV Capital, and True360. MAX Digital's portfolio of software solutions will operate as a separate and independent business unit, preserving current management and product offerings. Former CEO Robert Granados will lead this independent business unit within ACV.

    "This event brings together two like-minded companies dedicated to delivering best-in-class solutions to the dealer community. With ACV's emphasis on trust and transparency, we know that the integrity of MAX Digital's platform will remain intact as well as our shared value of prioritizing customer feedback for long-term client relationships," said Robert Granados. "I have no doubt that MAX Digital becoming part of the innovative and exciting ACV family will be a huge plus for our customers and our people."

    IMS products, like MAX Digital's FirstLook solution, are used by dealers to help run appraisals and examine inventory to determine how to price vehicles for sale, whether for wholesale or retail. Merchandising products support dealers in effectively promoting, positioning and selling their retail vehicles.

    MAX Digital tools are all cloud-based and can integrate easily with existing Dealer Management Systems (DMS), allowing for seamless dealer set-up. ACV expects that the transaction will be neutral to its Adjusted EBITDA in 2021.  Management plans to update investor guidance as part of its second quarter earnings release.

  • BUFFALO, N.Y.June 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ACV (Nasdaq: ACVA), the leading digital automotive marketplace for dealers and commercial partners, today announced new title-dependent products available through its financing arm, ACV Capital. Continuing to build on the current flexible financing options, new innovative product offerings increase the trust and transparency of ACV's digital auctions by extending the title receipt period, as well as expanding payment period options for title absent (TA) vehicles and credit lines for high volume sellers.  

    "These new ACV Capital enhancements take dealer feedback into account and provide them with flexible financing options that are built for their business. We are committed to giving our dealer partners the services they need to transact digitally with confidence," said ACV CEO George Chamoun.

    New product offerings include:

    • 60+30 Duration: The most frequently requested product enhancement from existing customers is the 60+30 allowing for a 90-day floorplan floating period. This gives customers a frictionless experience no matter what term limit they desire; they can choose to opt out of the renewal before the expiration of their term by clearing the loan, or for those who prefer an extension, no additional action is required – the product auto-renews out by 30 days with just the single extension fee; there's no curtailment and no refloor fees.
    • ACV Advantage: Buyer TA Hold (Pay on Title Sent): Rather than the buyer being required to pay for the purchased vehicle at the close of auction, the ACV Advantage product (TA Hold) extends payment due to the day ACV receives and clears the title from the seller, to a maximum of 45 days. With this payment option, ACV is able to conduct a credit check and financial review of the buyer to assign a credit line that can be monitored during the floating administrative period.
    • ACV Accelerate: Revolving Line of Credit for Sellers: The ACV Accelerate product does just that - accelerates the receipt of funds when the car sells. Created with the goal of supporting high volume sellers by awarding a revolving line of credit to float the period between auction end and the title being received by ACV. The lending is evaluated daily through reporting, rather than on a per-VIN basis, to allow for high velocity changes in portfolio as titles are processed. Regular rate adjustments protect both the buyer and the seller.

    Customer feedback to ACV's recent enhancements demonstrate the value these title-dependent products are providing for dealers. Bridgeland Auto Brokers and Candy Cars' office manager Lori Trichilo says, "The ACV Advantage product has been convenient from an administrative perspective and also frees up operating cash on vehicles that we cannot sell or floor due to lack of title."

  • BUFFALO, N.Y. — ACV, the leading digital automotive marketplace for wholesale vehicle transactions and data services, today announced its newest offering, ACV PRIVATE MARKETPLACES, providing dealers with a dedicated closed platform to list and sell vehicles to select audiences. With ACV’s fully customizable private marketplace product, each customer can define who they are inviting, the sale format, timing and branding within the online marketplace to facilitate efficient movement of inventory and faster, more profitable sales.

    ACV PRIVATE MARKETPLACES offers unparalleled trust and transparency for private groups looking to transact digitally. This product is envisioned to serve two primary audiences; initially large dealership groups with multiple locations and commercial partners who require a closed auction platform. To run a vehicle privately, the dealer lists the vehicle for sale within their designated private marketplace and the vehicle will open to an invite-only list of participants. Offering complete flexibility, the auction time frame is fully adjustable and invited participants can place a proxy bid if they are not available within the designated auction period. If the vehicle does not sell for the minimal price, it can then be seamlessly listed within ACV’s open marketplace.

    “We’re helping dealer groups and OEM lenders keep inventory within their family of rooftops. This helps them leverage their scale to buy and sell used vehicles and have access to more inventory, while maximizing profits. Our proprietary technology and data analysis shows that within our private marketplace offering, vehicles that are listed for sale amongst a selected group of dealer invitees results in a vehicle being more likely to land at a retail location where it will sell faster and with better margins vs the legacy tools that dealers are using to trade within a group,” said ACV’s CEO George Chamoun. “ACV PRIVATE MARKETPLACES is a natural next step in our continued growth, meeting the needs of dealer groups and commercial partners of all sizes, while also allowing us to add new sources of supply to our marketplace.”

    Auctions conducted within the private marketplace can leverage ACV’s nationwide network of inspectors conducting the industry’s most trusted and transparent condition reports in addition to ACV’s full suite of administrative services from pricing tools to invoicing automation. In addition, ACV can integrate with the Dealer’s inventory management system to receive vehicle information directly into the platform. 

    “ACV PRIVATE MARKETPLACES is easy-to-use and is greatly helping us with information sharing across our network of dealerships, which is crucial to making the right vehicle trades and optimizing our business. Since partnering with ACV, we’ve been able to keep more vehicles within our dealership group that otherwise would have been wholesaled. Our used vehicles are finding the right homes within our group thanks to ACV’s accurate and detailed condition reports which ensures confident buying decisions,” said Nate Myers at Performance Automotive Group.

    PRIVATE MARKETPLACES is live today for dealer groups and will be made available to commercial partners later this year.

    “During our beta testing, we saw promising results and received glowing feedback from our dealer partners, who have been asking for a customizable product that allows for within-network trading and a more personalized, self-service experience,” said Kraig Quisenberry, Vice President of Product Solutions at ACV. “As a data and technology company, we are well positioned to meet these types of dealer asks, no matter the size of the dealer’s business. Our core product helps dealers small and large digitize their businesses and drive their bottom lines, whereas new products like ACV PRIVATE MARKETPLACES help the larger dealer groups and commercial partners optimize vehicle trades within their networks.”
