Media companies and software vendors are facing a hotbed of activity in the automotive space. Consumers are forcing major change; dealers are requiring new levels of IT functionality, and M&A activity continues to drive consolidation and competitive threats.
These companies require guidance to assist them with challenges and opportunities on the road ahead. Here are some ways that we’ve helped our clients.
- Assisted a foreign-based online media company with the valuation and potential acquisition of a U.S. asset.
- Advised an online media company with strategic auto industry guidance to improve product offerings and competitive positioning.
- Valued a software vendor for a larger vendor seeking to make an acquisition in the same space.
- Provided a traditional media company with a nationwide analysis of advertising trends related to its products. This analysis include interviewing its customers (franchise dealers) as well as a plan to improve its relevance and future offerings to further appeal to both automakers and franchise dealers.
