Technological Change and a New Wave of Takeovers in the German Automotive Sector

Interview with Christian Saxenhammer in the specialist magazine, Automobil Industrie, about takeovers in the German automotive sector.

Christian Saxenhammer, Managing Director of Saxenhammer & Co., provides insights into the current consolidation of the medium-sized supply industry. He knows which trades are under the most pressure and why Made in Germany is still convincing. The number of M&A transactions in the automotive sector will rise due to technological change, which is particularly evident in the switch to electric propulsion: "It naturally affects companies in the powertrain sector in particular. That's where the pressure is greatest at the moment. But I believe that, unrelated to that, there is a trend towards size. The OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers want to deal with larger units in order to have more stable partners. They need to have a certain financial strength for new technologies and a global footprint. A medium-sized company with a turnover of 100 million euros cannot afford this."
