Industry & Approach

Automotive Aftermarket

A Deep Middle-Market Aftermarket Practice

BlackArch aims to provide the deepest aftermarket practice team in the industry. Our experience encompasses the auto, heavy duty and motorcycle aftermarkets, as well as several other niche sectors. We’ve worked with clients at every point in the Automotive Aftermarket supply chain, from parts and accessories suppliers to distributors, retailers and service providers.

We track the dynamics that make the aftermarket such an attractive investment for strategic and financial investors, including the steady increase in vehicle miles driven, vehicles on the road and the average age of vehicles. Combined, these trends drive stable growth across the aftermarket industry.

Knowing the industry’s key strategic buyers, landscape

Our bankers have executed a significant number of M&A transactions in the sector and know the industry landscape intimately. We also have deep knowledge of the relevant domestic and international strategic buyers, as well as financial buyers with affinity for the sector.

We advise on a wide array of situations, from managing pre-emptive conversations with strategic buyers to broad sell-side engagements.
