Frequently asked question

How have horizontal merger affected the performance of the company?

-With the name of the company sprawled out over a multitude of other companies it has greatly increased the base of profit, and it has also reduced the risk of running it head first into the ground as all of the corporations prove a safety-net in the instance that one were to "fall".

How risky is the business overall?

-Very, like previously stated the name of VW is straddled across a vibrant array of companies that provide support in times of dire need of assistance. On a minuscule view it much safer than perhaps having only one or two other legs as opposed to eleven with an additional three hundred-forty subsidiary companies.
