Lincoln International’s Automotive and Truck Sector Celebrates Record 2021
The global automotive and truck sector team successfully executed a record number of transactions for private and publicly traded corporate and private equity clients in 2021
Lincoln closed 24 transactions in the automotive and truck space in 2021, with approximately half completed in the U.S. and half in Europe. This strong activity was boosted by the continued seismic shifts in automotive technologies towards smarter, electrified and autonomous transportation solutions. Despite the additional challenges posed by supply chain issues resulting in production volume volatility, many of Lincoln’s automotive clients are successfully embracing the changing landscape by divesting non-strategic assets and building out new capabilities; ongoing consolidation will continue to be a significant factor in the industry.
On the automotive technology side, the spectrum of transactions Lincoln advised on ranged from the sale of a sensor supplier for advance drive assistant systems (ADAS) and electric vehicle (EV) applications, to traffic infrastructure management technologies and connected vehicle platforms. The global nature of the 2021 automotive transaction portfolio is underpinned by the fact that four strategic buyers in our transactions were Asian, three from China and one from Japan.
Lincoln International's automotive and truck sector celebrate record M&A results in 2021.
