AID CONSULTANCY SERVICE


INCLUDE AID'S EXPERTISE IN YOUR NEXT STRATEGIC PROJECT

In addition to contributing to AID's regular off-the-shelf publications, our senior analysts have long acted as strategic advisers and consultants on matters concerning the current and likely future health of the automotive industry and its individual members in Europe, the USA, Asia and Japan. AID's consultancy service covers both passenger car and commercial vehicle manufacturers, its suppliers and their commercial well-being.
We have the ability to carry out objective investigations into the commercial strength and weaknesses of individual industry members together with strongly related rational assessments of their products, image and related marketing considerations.

Allied to that is the ability to assess, often at short notice, current and future market and sector developments, including the key issue of future product action from various industry participants. Such analysis has a strong bearing on the competitive strength and staying power of individual industry members and their ability to either flourish or wilt in future years. In short, we are confident in making objective assessments of likely future winners and losers.

  An example would be an opportunity and risk investigation to evaluate the commercial viability for someone wanting to enter the European market for automatic transmissions or CVT (constantly variable transmission). How big is the market, where is it going, who are the main customers and key suppliers and, critically, is there room for an additional likely supplier? Who else is planning to enter the market?


 


TAKEOVERS, MERGERS, STRATEGIC ALLIANCE

We are able to assess the varied commercial implications of a takeover or merger, be it commercially or financially. This includes likely target lists of willing or desirable partners and identification of advantages and drawbacks, split into short, medium and long term. We can provide input to an in-house team or work alongside external service providers. It goes without saying that total confidentially is guaranteed.


FULLY EQUIPPED FOR THOROUGH HEALTH CHECK

Apart from our specialist knowledge on the industry and strength and weaknesses of industry members, we have the ability to back-up proposed scenarios and "statement on current company health" with factual data, including the analysis of hard-data with salient trends. This calls for extensive and detailed data on market patterns that extends a long way beyond the data quality generally available to non-industry members. Expressed simply, our factual and comprehensive data-base is seen as a key ingredient to any objective assessment. And that, it seems is where AID is streets ahead of most industry consultants. We have been in this fast-moving business for more than 15 years, which, we believe, speaks for itself.

While our investigative health-checks on industry members are fairly searching, backed up with hard factual data, we do not, however, specialise in a 'searching' and highly specialised financial assessment. This field, we believe, is best left to fully qualified financial data wizards. All in all, if the task in hand is split into the two following distinctive areas of specialisation:
- commercial and strategic aspects
- pure financial strategic aspects


WE AT AID ARE FULLY QUALIFIED, WHEN APPROACHED, TO DEAL COMPREHENSIVELY AND EXPERTLY WITH ALL MATTERS REGARDING THE COMMERCIAL FIELD.

Finally, if instructed to undertake an investigation - say, pros and cons of a planned strategic share acquisition, merger, or even hostile takeover - we guarantee total confidentiality.
