If you had to name the three most crowded markets in the world, it’d probably go something like this: the Wall Street trading floor circa 1987; the Cairo market out of Raiders of the Lost Ark; the current family hatchback car market.
The rising popularity of crossover SUVs, many of which are spun off hatchbacks, has done nothing to make the buying process any less mystifying for drivers. And sales figures show that big, high-riding, rugged-looking crossovers are as alluring as a silver earing to a crow.
Marshall Motor Holdings PLC (LON:MMH) is the 7th largest motor dealer group in the UK. Since 2008, 86 franchises have been added and 36 non-core or loss making operations have left the portfolio.
