News Blog April 2022

Without Prejudice/All rights reserved! In this issue of our monthly blog I am going to share some recorded statistics as provided by Naamsa on new vehicle sales, some interesting information about the Motor Industries contribution to the South African economy and maybe a comment or two on Financial Institutions and TransUnion values. According to the Naamsa the new vehicle sales once again exceeded all expectations with a continued growth! The recorded sales for March 2022 was 50 607 - the highest sales performance since pre-pandemic October 2019! Interesting is that the car rental business represents 11% of these sales. Export sales unfortunately showed a decline of 4 861 units or 12.4% vs March 2021. The medium and heavy commercial vehicle sales also showed a positive growth by 798 and 2044 units respectively with a growth of 18,4% for medium commercial and a 14,5% growth in the heavies versus the corresponding month 2021 The positive growth in vehicle sales (passenger and commercial) could be linked to the increasing normalising of business with pandemic relief. The reason why I always like to share these stats is because the Motor Industry plays a very big role in our economy! Unfortunately the same cannot be said about the used medium and heavy truck sales market that haven’t been performing well at all in March and April to date! A few facts about the South African Motor Industry: - The Automotive Industry contributes to 4,9% of GDP - In 2020 the export of vehicles and automotive components reached a record amount of R 175.7 Billion rands, equating to 13.9% of the total South African exports. - Vehicles and components are exported to 147 international markets. - We are the fifth largest exporter of a 104 sectors exporting. - The manufacturing side of the industry employs 110 000 people! - Combined with the industries multiplying effect, the automotive sector provides work for approximately 457 000 people! Well, that was enough about stats! In moving on I would like to once again raise my view on financial institutions and TransUnion values! With my thirty odd years of experience in this industry and being an Appraiser, I strongly disagree with the method that is used to determine values of used vehicles! In the current state of affairs in the used vehicle market good stock is hard to procure and comes at a price! As dealers, we don’t find it strange to buy stock for over retail, then refurbishments haven’t even started yet! By the time the end product is ready for sale, the price can easily exceed the TransUnion’s retail value by as much as 40-50%. When the buyer wants to finance the vehicle, the financial institutions normally decline the deal or ask for a huge deposit to adjust the values to be in line with that of systematic evaluation formulas, which in my opinion is old fashioned and outdated, instead of considering the basic principle of “supply and demand” and also replacement costs! Businesses in SA continuously have to deal with unnecessary challenges like the strike at port in Richards Bay, trucks queuing for km’s at Beitbridge border post, where there is also no water!! On top of all else a big thank you to Eskom for another series of loadshedding to follow from 12 April!! Crime and hi-jacking are also increasing by the day, with thugs and organised crime just “booming” in their own powerful, dangerous and destructive ways! Despite all of these external factors that we cannot do anything about, let’s stay strong and positive and pull it through! Wishing you all a happy and Blessed Easter and stay safe on those roads! - Cobus Lourens -
