The main purpose of the transaction is to better reflect the increasingly global nature of Fiat‘s business, enhance its appeal to international investors and facilitate its listing and trading on the NYSE.

The merger will be subject to limited closing conditions and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

The Fiat group designs, engineers, develops and manufactures vehicles for the mass market under the Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Abarth and Fiat professional brands and Chrysler brands such as Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram, as well as luxury cars under the Ferrari and Maserati brands. Fiat also operates in the components and production systems sector.

The Loyens & Loeff core team consists of Guido Portier, Bert van der Poel, Patrick van Oppen, Michel van Agt from the Amsterdam office and Peter Corten, Wouter Kros, Jason van de Pol and Marleen Wessel from the London office.

In this transaction Loyens & Loeff works closely together with US and UK counsel Sullivan & Cromwell and Italian counsel Legance.
