This does not mean that the Autotrader.com purchase of VinSolutions was valued at $100 million, it just needed this cashflow to complete the deal. 

There were so many numbers thrown out there about how much VinSolutions sold for, but we may never know that exact number right now.  This article shed some light on the background financing of the transaction so I wanted to share it on DrivingSales.
