I hope that everyone is having a great start to the holiday season. To kick off the festive fervor, in this edition, we’re featuring a guest article from a fellow EV enthusiast and long-term M&A advisor, Matthew Miller, managing director at Cascade Partners. Over the last year, commercial financing has dramatically slowed down, especially coming out of the de-SPAC boom, due to a combination of factors such as inflation and the Fed’s tightening of the monetary policy. All the while, the EV ecosystem is gearing up for unprecedented investments over the next many years. However, this is turning out to be difficult given the current market conditions, with less certainty on which way the U.S. economy will land. In his article, Matthew dives into the recent statistics on mergers and acquisitions activity and financing efforts over the last year and shares his take on the road ahead. In our second article, Bob Weiss, the Chair of Dickinson Wright’s EV advisory group, shares an excerpt of his recent interview with Mike Hall, Executive Director of Automotive Analysis at S&P Global Mobility, an arm of S&P Global that provides in-depth insight derived from automotive data enabling its customers to make business decisions. I hope you enjoy this edition of our newsletter.
