2017 OPE Cost of Doing Business Study

From our partners at HBK CPAs & Consultants:

HBK’s Dealership niche, led by Rex Collins, CPA, CVA, is compiling and analyzing information as part of the 2017 OPE Cost of Doing Business Study. The study will assess the financial performance and condition of outdoor power equipment (OPE) dealers for 2017 based on the data received by all participating dealers. As with any industry study, the strength of the final product improves with a strong population of data. As a manager and/or owner of an OPE dealership, you have the power to help make this study a huge success!

All participating dealerships will receive a free copy of the final report which includes key financial performance ratios and benchmarks for your dealership, your market and the overall industry. The overall time commitment to participate in the survey should take the dealership 5 to 10 minutes.

In order to participate, please fill in your information in our survey. You can upload detailed 2016 and 2017 departmental income statements and balance sheets through the survey or send them securely to us via SafeSend. You may also fax your forms to (330) 758-0357.

HBK strives to provide the association and industry with a reliable and meaningful report. The more accurate the data you send, the better. HBK may reach out to the contact provided with any questions on the data submitted.
