[en] Throughout the history of the automotive industry, car manufacturers had to innovate to remain competitive. A solution that has been frequently used consists of merging or acquiring another company. These M&As have modulated the face of the sector. However, each merger or acquisition operation has resulted in diverse manners. Regrettably, the extant literature did not dig into the matter with a cross analysis to explain why car manufacturers have succeed where others have failed. This ultimate statement represents the objective of this thesis.The primary purpose of this work would be to provide auto makers with analyses of several M&As that have took place in the history. This, to guide these manufacturers in their possible upcoming operation with a presentation of possible incentives of the operation, possible outcomes and possible risks
