Sale of Chrysler LLC to new Fiat alliance approved

Chrysler LLC has announced that the US Bankruptcy Court has approved its request to sell substantially all of its operations to Chrysler Group LLC, the new company formed in alliance with Fiat SpA.

“With this approval, the new Chrysler Group is created and can prepare to launch as a vibrant new company formed with Fiat,” said Robert L. Nardelli, chairman and CEO of Chrysler LLC. “Through the hard work and foresight of many Chrysler stakeholders, Chrysler Group will soon begin operations with significant strategic advantages, such as a wage and benefit structure for active and retired employees that is competitive with those of transplant manufacturers; a reduction of debt and interest expense; the disposition of idle assets; a rationalized and more efficient dealer network; and sound agreements with our suppliers. While this has been an extremely difficult chapter in Chrysler’s history for all involved, the new company and its customers, employees and suppliers can now begin on a fresh page.”

The alliance with Fiat provides Chrysler Group with access to products that complement the company’s current portfolio, technology cooperation, and stronger global distribution. Work with Fiat is already well underway to develop the next generation of environmentally friendly, fuel-efficient vehicles.

“We are very grateful to loyal Chrysler customers who have supported us throughout this process and assure them Chrysler Group is well prepared to produce and support quality vehicles under the Jeep, Dodge and Chrysler brands, as well as parts under the Mopar brand,” continued Nardelli.

Chrysler’s Mexican, Canadian and other international operations will also be acquired by Chrysler Group.
