Chinese Firm Purchases Majority Stake in South Korean Automaker

Voice of America
October 28, 2004

A Chinese company has purchased a majority stake in South Korea's fourth-largest automaker, Ssangyong Motor.

A final contract for Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp. to purchase a 48.9 percent stake in Ssangyong from the automaker's creditors was signed Thursday.

Ssangyong has been up for sale since 1999, when creditors took control of the debt-ridden company after the collapse of its parent, Daewoo Group.

Shanghai Automotive has two major joint ventures in China with auto giants, General Motors and Volkswagen.
