Private Equity Firms

Mergers and acquisitions in the automotive industry are booming. Many firms have consolidated, carved out assets, or invested in entirely new and independent assets. MK&A regularly assists private equity firms, and other entities, in multiple M&A-related activities.

Private equity firms require guidance to assist with them with the challenges and opportunities on the road ahead. Here are some ways that we’ve helped private equity firms.
