The global automotive industry posted total sales of Xmillion units for 2012, which is a X% gain from 2011 global sales volumes. A slowdown in the volume of European sales was compensated for by double-digit growth in sales in North America (Canada and the United States). A total of Xmillion vehicle units were sold in North America in 2012, which was up by Xmillion on a year-on-year (YoY) basis. Sales are expected to grow further for the next few years.
Funding for the automotive industry has been on the rise for the past 5 years, reflecting the automotive industry’s growth in production and sales. In 2009, much consolidation occurred in the industry, leading to many M&As. In 2010, some exceptional bailout measures were extended by the central governments of many developed countries, and many investment plans developed from leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) recovering from the sub-prime crisis of 2008 and 2009.
In 2008 and 2009, M&As and private placement deals contributed significantly to transactions. Very few fixed-income transactions and public offerings took place during this period for lack of credit in the global financial system and lack of public confidence in IPOs. After the fiscal measures undertaken by major central governments, the global economy overcame the financial crisis of 2008. In the years that followed, there were many IPOs, and credit was available in the financial system.
The number of M&A deals in 2009 was lower than in 2008, but they still contributed toX% of the deal value in 2009. This means there were many high-value M&A activities during that period, which is why the average M&A value rose to $X million in 2009 from $Xmillion in 2008. Similarly, some large IPOs occurred in 2010. These raised the average IPO transaction value to $X million in 2010 from $Xmillion in 2009.
