REUTERS/Rebecca Cook/File PhotoMILAN (Reuters) - Fiat Chrysler's FCHA.MI merger with Peugeot maker PSA PEUP.PA will include a loyalty scheme for long-term investors in the new group and help prevent future takeover attempts, the prospectus for the planned tie-up shows.
In December, Italian-American carmaker Fiat Chrysler (FCA) and France’s PSA agreed to combine in a $38 billion all-share deal, uniting brands such as Fiat, Jeep, Dodge, Ram and Maserati with the likes of Peugeot, Opel, Citroen and DS.
Such a move could concentrate Stellantis’ voting power in a small number of shareholders, making management changes and takeover attempts more difficult, they added.
PSA and FCA have filed the merger plan with antitrust authorities in 21 countries and the European Union.
