Beleaguered Alternative Asset Firm Also Reaches $30M Settlement With Former Prime CEO
New York-based GPB Capital Holdings, LLC has finalized its sale of its Prime Automotive Group to Group 1 Automotive. The purchase includes all of Prime Auto’s assets, including over two dozen car dealerships and three collision centers.
The $880M sale of Prime Automotive Group was announced in September 2021. This comes months after a regulatory filing in May 2021 when GPB Capital stated that it doubted the former’s survival. In August 2021, the alternative asset firm spoke about selling dealerships to generate operational liquidity.
