Palo Alto – June 9, 2020 – Rudy Burger, Managing Partner of Woodside Capital Partners, shared his presentation on Investment and M&A Activity in the Autonomous Vehicle Sector for the online event AmCham Shanghai: The Race to Dominate Next-Generation Automotive Technology.
His discussion points included:
- The major factors influencing investment in autonomous vehicles over the next 24 months will be macroeconomic (driven by Covid19 and the price of oil) and regulatory.
- Automotive OEMs and supply chain companies are among the hardest hit from the current pandemic and are expected to be primarily focused on cash management over the next 12-24 months.
- Both venture and private equity still have large funds to invest, but this will mostly go to shoring up existing investments and rolling up competitors.
