Deloitte & Touche Corporate Finance

D&TCF: Automotive Image

The automotive industry remains strong, but will continue to face challenges as many factors drive change and strengthen the merger and acquisition environment:

  • Suppliers continue consolidation through acquisition to gain scale and market share to remain competitive in an environment where manufacturers are sourcing low cost parts from overseas suppliers.
  • Divestitures continue to increase as suppliers restructure from chapter 11 bankruptcy and OEMs continue to focus on their core businesses.
  • Uninvested capital and strong lending multiples are driving M&A competition as financial buyers look for investment opportunities.
  • Automotive companies push toward outsourcing as consumer demand for technology forces them to seek outside services to maintain a competitive time-to-market.
