Car dealership Pendragon increases full-year profit outlook for second time in less than two months










Car dealership Pendragon has increased its full-year profit outlook as supply issues have proved to be not as bad as feared.

The shortage of new cars was lower than expected in October and November. And price rises and strong sales of used vehicles also boosted profits.

The Evans Halshaw and Stratstone owner now expects full-year profits of around £80million, up from guidance of £70million in October.

Forecourt forecasts: Car dealership Pendragon increased its full-year profit outlook for the second time in two months as it said new car supply issues have not been as bad as feared

That profits haul for 2021 will mark a sharp improvement on the £8.2million in 2020. 

It comes despite car showrooms being hit by a global shortage of microchips used in vehicle electronics.

Car production has ramped up again as demand began to grow, but chip manufacturers have been unable to keep up. 

This has had a knock-on effect on used car demand and cost, with the most recent official inflation data showing prices have soared by 27.4 per cent between April and October.
