Companies are shifting focus from accelerated growth and market share gains to sustaining profitable growth.

Automotive respondents have a negative view of the global automotive M&A environment, despite a generally more favorable deal making environment, according to our fifth Capital Confidence Barometer in the automotive industry.

As rapid growth in production volumes and corresponding earnings growth following the automotive recession of 2008 and 2009 has begun to moderate, companies are shifting focus from accelerated growth and market share gains to sustaining profitable growth. As such, the number of companies looking to sell assets continues to increase.

Take a closer look at our findings:

General survey highlights include:

  • 87% feel the global economy is stable or improving
  • 92% expect to maintain or increase their workforce over the next 12 months
  • 23% plan to refinance loans or debt obligations in the next 12 months
  • 22% expect to make an acquisition in the next 12 months
  • 25% see divestments as likely in their organization over the next 12 months
  • 50% indicate growth as their company‚Äôs primary focus over the next 12 months
