Selling Opel: Common Sense Prevails at General Motors.

In this post, Maryann Keller, Principal of MK&A, rationalizes why GM’s consideration to sell its Opel unit is both pragmatic and overdue. Maryann explains that Europe suffers from “excess capacity, tough regulations, and high fixed labor costs.” She further adds that “the auto industry is in the process of redefining ‘what is a car’ as well as the purpose of automakers in the car’s evolutionary future. This paradigm shift will require automakers to seek significant capital to fund future acquisitions and investments.”
