    Peugeot family launched some financial operations so to increase its share in PSA.
    Last move was to sign a contract with financial trader for "equity swap".
    They will pay up to Euro 200 million.

    For french stock market regulators swap equity is equivalent to have shares vote control. So their parteciaption is now equivalent to 13.59%.

    Anyone else notice that Chrysler has been under different ownership at the start of every decade going back to 1990?

    Sorry. Only good thing from it was RWD came back. I will always wonder what the company would look like if Eaton and all the other cronies didn't look at their personal gain and screw over the company

    RWD came back, the GEN III Hemi was developed, and, the Germans being big on Motorsports, Dodge was allowed to budget for re-entering NASCAR (and for increasing support in NHRA and open-wheel racing series).

    OK!...ok...I get it.

    In the interests of fairness...I admit that two good things to come from The Occupation were the LX cars, and Mike Manley.

    That's what I mean. 1990 they were Chrysler Group. 2000 they were DCX. 2010 they were FCA. 2020 they're PSAFCABCDEFG

    LX cars were coming anyway. They would have had more window area, nicer interiors, and lower prices. Don't credit Daimler with the Hemi, either... that was coming.

    Jeep: Started out with Bantam inventing the thing. Then Willys and Ford made it during the war (based on Willys' design upgrades). Then Willys, then Kaiser, then AMC, then Chrysler...

    And Chrysler had its own changes: Maxwell, then Flanders, then WPC.

    Thanks for the correction.

    Now, I can scratch out those two items from my VERY short list of good things that happened during The Occupation.

    The headline may be hyperbolic, but I think the article contains some valid speculation on how COVID-19 could hamper the merger effort between PSA and FCA:

    Coronavirus could kill Peugeot merger with Fiat Chrysler

    [Mods: Feel free to move this under another discussion if necessary.]

    Now that the threat of COVID-19 has subsided in China, newscasts are showing assembly lines moving again. My question is: who is going to be buying autos in the foreseeable future?

    If our collective coronavirus containment efforts end up sending the global economy back to 1929, the focus of world governments is going to shift from regulating to reigniting economic activity.

    Also, coming out of this I see protectionism flaring up, resulting in massive changes to how our supply lines are currently set up. The more reason for PSA to want to have manufacturing and distribution in EU and in North America.
