A major automotive manufacturer was suffering financially after failed merger discussions with a competitor, and continuing to lag on internal adaptations to get the firm up to speed on electrification, software, and new-mobility services. AlixPartners was brought in to shepherd the transformation plan.

We assisted on negotiations with 20 suppliers, reviewed 17 company functions, revamped and revitalized the sales and operations planning (S&OP) process to improve margin-driven decisions, and analyzed €10 billion of stocks. 

Overall, the improvements revved things up: We delivered €750 million of margin improvements and €550 million in cash improvements.
