Customer confidence: The Company’s focus on four core client’s benefits (low, no-haggle prices; a broad selection; high-quality vehicles; and a customer-friendly sale process) results in high customer satisfaction and word-of-mouth promotion.
We are lacking of good amount of funding to expand the business.
We have been able to conduct thorough feasibility studies and market survey and we know what our potential clients will be looking for when they reach out to Sigma Auto Capital LLC.
New markets: The Company plans to grow 15% to 20% per year. We will expand our location after 24 months.
Used-car prices will continue to increase because of greater demand, but also because of a shortage of vehicles. This can be attributed mainly to the economic downturn, in which leasing declined substantially and was even banned by some manufacturers.
Just like any other business, one of the major threats that we are likely going to face is the economic downturn. It is a fact that the economic downturn affects purchasing/spending power.
Unfavorable government policies may also pose a threat to businesses such as ours.
Economic conditions: The Company is vulnerable to client’s credit availability and delinquency, interest rates, gas prices, and discretionary spending.
Capital: Changes in the availability or cost of capital and working capital financing is a threat to Sigma Auto Group, Inc.

Number of new and used light vehicle sales in the United States from 2000 to 2018(in millions)
The United States has one of the largest automotive markets in the world. In 2018, U.S. light vehicle sales reached 17.2 million units, the fourth straight year in which sales reached or surpassed 17 million units. Overall, the United States is the world’s second-largest market for vehicle sales and production.
Since Honda opened its first U.S. plant in 1982, almost every major European, Japanese, and Korean automaker has produced vehicles and invested more than $75 billion in the United States. The U.S. affiliates of majority foreign-owned automotive companies directly support more than 400,000 U.S. jobs. Additionally, many automakers have U.S.-based engine and transmission plants, and conduct R&D, design, and testing in the United States. Total foreign direct investment in the U.S. automotive industry reached $114.6 billion in 2018.
The automotive industry is also at the forefront of innovation. New R&D initiatives are transforming the industry to better respond to the opportunities of the 21st century. According to Auto Alliance, of the $105 billion spent on R&D globally, almost a fifth ($18 billion) is spent in the United States.
In 2018, the United States exported 1.8 million new light vehicles and 131,200 medium and heavy trucks (valued at over $60 billion) to more than 200 markets around the world, with additional exports of automotive parts valued at $88.5 billion. With an open investment policy, a large consumer market, a highly skilled workforce, available infrastructure, and local and state government incentives, the United States is the premier market for the 21st-century automotive industry.

62% of prime car buyers chose used vehicles in Q1 2019: The industry may be selling fewer brand-new vehicles, but Americans have not stopped buying. The majority of prime consumers are becoming more interested in used vehicles, for the average price of new cars on the market has gone over $36,000, and the interest rates have turned less appealing.
The average revenue per utility vehicle escalated from $800 to $33,100 in Q1 2019: The pockets of automakers are not hurting despite the cooling off of the overall auto retail market. Manufacturers are shifting their focus to more profitable SUVs, pickups, and crossover utility vehicles, which increased in sales by 2% in the first quarter of 2019. This automobile statistic inspires optimism for the industry’s immediate future.
Rising used-car demand gifted dealers a historic sales year: Dealership groups owe a debt of gratitude to scorching demand for used vehicles to achieve sales milestones in 2018. Group 1 Automotive retailed 13.9% more used cars in 2018 to attain an all-time high of $11.6 billion in revenue. Asbury Automotive also had a prosperous 2018 after setting a new revenue record of $6.9 billion. The company’s used-car sales grew by 5%, resulting in an increase of 7% in used-vehicle gross profit.
Pricing is one of the key factors that gives leverage to used car dealers. We know we do not have to compete with other companies therefore, we can assure that the prices of all the products are comfortable to each dealer. Each item will be sold at $3,000-$6000 under current wholesale prices. We have a plan to do profit 10-35% on each sale.
We will apply the following pricing strategy to do more sales
Wholesale price: Choosing the right pricing strategy for our brand
Keystone pricing: A simple markup formula
Multiple pricing: The pros and cons of bundle pricing
Loss-leading pricing: Increasing the average transaction value
Psychological pricing: Use charm pricing to sell more with odd numbers

A lot of risks have been anticipated and our management plan is a program to cover it.
It is true that, no matter how successful a business/ company is, a time will come when we might not want to continue its operations due to a number of reasons such as a change in vision, economic conditions and many more. When a scenario like this occurs, we will exist operation by liquidating our asset. Our exit strategy will be
