Who owns Chrysler? 13th April, 2011

25th January, 2011

Chrysler Group announced earlier this month that Fiat's ownership interest in the Company has increased from 20 per cent to 25 per cent upon the Companyís achievement of the first of three performance-related 'milestones'.

As outlined last year, Chrysler Group issued an irrevocable commitment letter to the U.S. Treasury stating that the Company has received the appropriate governmental approvals and will begin production of the 'Fully Integrated Robotised Engine' (FIRE) in its Dundee, Michigan (USA), facility. As a result, Fiatís ownership interest increased automatically under the terms of the Operating Agreement.

The ownership interests of Chrysler Groupís members are now:

UAW VEBA 63.5 per cent
Fiat 25.0 per cent
U.S. Treasury   9.2 per cent
Canadian Governments†   2.3 per cent

The first North American application of Fiat's 1.4-litre FIRE engine with MultiAir Technology will be in the new Mexican-manufactured Fiat 500, which Chrysler Group will begin to distribute soon through newly appointed dealers.

Fiat has the opportunity to further increase its ownership in Chrysler to 35 per cent, in 5 per cent increments, through two additional performance-related milestones. The first such milestone relates to revenue and sales growth outside of the North American region. The second milestone relates to production in the United States of a low fuel consumption vehicle based on a Fiat platform.
