In addition to the investments in INRIX, PTV, Markforged and Seurat Technologies, Porsche SE plans to acquire further strategic investments. The principal criteria for future investments are the connection to the automotive value chain, and above-average growth potential based on macroeconomic trends and industry-specific trends derived from them.
The automotive value chain comprises the entire spectrum of basic technologies geared to supporting the development and production process through to vehicle- and mobility-related services. The relevant macro trends include, for example, sustainability and conservation of resources, demographic change, urbanization and the increasingly networked automotive world. The industry-specific trends derived from these include new materials and drive concepts, shorter product life cycles and rising customer demands regarding safety and connectivity.
Porsche SE's investment focus is on strategic investments in companies that meet these criteria and contribute to the goal of achieving sustainable value enhancement. Investment opportunities are examined on an ongoing basis.
