Car Dealer Live 99: Zeus Capital’s Mike Allen

Time 1 year ago

Car Dealer Live was all about the big dealer group plcs when Mike Allen joined the show.

Broadcast live on the Car Dealer YouTube channel on September 18, Allen chatted with host James Batchelor about Lookers, Marshall, Vertu, Cambria and Pendragon.

Other topics included Brexit and foreign investment.


Allen, a much-respected figure in the industry, is head of research at Zeus Capital – an independent investment banking operation. He has 20 years’ experience of looking at and writing about the listed dealer groups.

With a recent run of trading updates and interims being published and rumours of strong September trading performances, there was certainly much to talk about.
