- PSA Peugeot Citroen (PEUGF) is in talks with Chinese partner Dongfeng Motor and the French state over raising €3B ($4.1B) so it can invest in new models and growth markets, the struggling carmaker said yesterday.
- Dongfeng and France would provide at least €750M each in exchange for 14% apiece, Bloomberg reports. Peugeot's controlling family would invest €100M in order to retain a stake of 14% vs 25.5% currently. However, the family is divided over whether to accept the deal.
- The company would also hold a rights issue of €1.4B.
- Peugot hopes to a seal the agreement by February 19, when it is due to disclose its annual earnings. The deal would mark a shift away from its not overly successful partnership with GM.
