Overview:

  • The acquisition was announced in 2018 at a price of €6.2 billion but closed at €5.8 billion due to Magneti Marelli's estimated financial position as of the closing date.
  • The combined entity - Magneti Marelli CK Holdings - is the world's seventh largest global independent automotive supplier based on total revenues.
  • Despite the sale, the two parties will maintain close relation as Magneti Marelli will continue to be a key supplier to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
