Growth in merger and acquisitions (M&A) activity has been a notable trend in the automotive market in recent years, as industry stakeholders react to the challenges associated with new technology adoption and challenging profit margins. This has been particularly evident with component and system suppliers, as these companies position themselves for future growth by diversifying their portfolio and increasing content in their products.
Despite this, several studies have shown that more than 60 percent of M&A deals destroy shareholder value and, in some cases, end in total disaster. Often, this is due to a lack of discipline and knowledge in the evaluation process that fuels these deals.
At Ricardo Strategic Consulting (RSC), we utilize M&A specialists with extensive experience who provide our clients with end-to-end services that can address any aspect of the M&A value chain. This ranges from supporting commercial due diligence projects, identifying opportunities through a structured acquisition target screening, or a partnership/JV evaluation to assisting companies with complex post-merger integrations or divestiture/exit support. RSC also supports private equity clients throughout the investment process to provide technical and commercial insight where it is needed most.
For all M&A requirements, we provide solutions that our clients can feel confident about.
