Last Wednesday, we reported on talks between General Motors and Peugeot-Citroën on a possible alliance. Now, Reuters is reporting the talks have gone into advance stages and General Motors could be buying up a small share.
Reuters has learned from a couple sources at both companies that General Motors would purchase 5% of Peugeot-Citroën as part of their alliance deal. The stake could be worth $240 million dollars at Peugeot's current market value of $4.8 billion.
Sources say the deal could be announced within the next few days, but caution that an agreement has not been reached and the talks could still fall apart.
When asked for comment, GM and Peugeot-Citroën didn't respond.
