" As a successful and ambitious business, we are always looking to expand if the right opportunity arises," said Andy Sinclair, Sinclair Group Managing Director. "The chance to add such an iconic British motoring brand as Land Rover to our portfolio as well as a well-established dealership in Likes is exactly that, so we’re absolutely thrilled with this acquisition."

He added: " We want to build on the excellent reputation that Likes has developed and the hard work and commitment of the fantastic team in delivering outstanding levels of service and establishing strong retention amongst a loyal customer base."

" The future looks extremely bright for everyone connected with Sinclair Land Rover and with our Group’s experienced and extensive support infrastructure behind the business, we look forward to delivering a truly five-star retail experience to existing and prospective customers."

Dai Walters, Chairman of the Walters Group, commented: " Since purchasing Likes in 2009, we have established it as one of the top ranking Land Rover dealerships in the UK. We are delighted that Sinclair, as a local family run Welsh-based company, has acquired the business and we know that their expertise will ensure the business goes from strength to strength. I wish Andy and his team all the very best for the future."
