B&E Indicators

Issue Date - 26/05/2011
Automotive industry regains its footing
As the world continues to rebound from the recent financial crisis, the global automotive industry has regained its footing and is now in a growth mode through M&As. Although volumes have held steady in the M&A deal market, disclosed deal value declined to its lowest levels in five years. In 2010, 521 deals were closed with a total disclosed value of $29.4 billion against 532 deals worth $121.9 billion in 2009.

Deal activity moves upstream
Vehicle manufacturer and component supplier categories experienced higher levels of activity in the deal market during 2010 against 2009. In fact, much of the activity was carried out by firms seeking to: divest non-core assets; bolster core competencies; and engage new markets. On the other hand, deal volumes in the other categories, which include retail, leasing & wholesale, et al, experienced a significant decline.
