Why is it necessary for SBA to offer this program when floor plan financing is available via GMAC?
GMAC will primarily be assisting GM and Chrysler dealers that have been slated to continue their franchise after the announced downsizing. There are other GM and Chrysler dealers that are viable but have lost their access to floor plan financing when their lenders stopped making those loans.
In addition, some of the dealers slated for downsizing may still be viable as used car, service and repair providers. In fact, the majority of new car dealership profitability comes from the parts and service side of the business.
