  •   [导读]福特汽车公司宣布,已与浙江吉利控股集团有限公司就沃尔沃汽车集团及相关资产出售达成了确定的协议。此次交易预计于2010年第三季度完成。

2010年3月28日,密西根州迪尔伯恩市——福特汽车公司今天宣布,已与浙江吉利控股集团有限公司就沃尔沃汽车集团及相关资产出售达成了确定的协议。

此次交易预计于2010年第三季度完成,当然此交易还要符合通常交易完成条件,包括获得相关监管部门的批复。

沃尔沃汽车及其相关资产(主要为知识产权)的交易价格为18亿美元,其中2亿美元将以支票支付,其他将以现金支付。交易价格的现金支付比例可能会调整,因为交易价格通常会根据养老金赤字、负债、现金与流动资本有所调整,其最终的影响可能会使支付给福特的现金大幅减少。

“沃尔沃汽车不仅是一个知名的品牌,也有着优秀的产品生产线。此协议将使沃尔沃汽车能在归属吉利之后继续开展它的业务。”福特汽车公司总裁兼首席执行官艾伦& #8226;穆拉利说,“与此同时,出售沃尔沃汽车将使我们福特能进一步集中力量在全球打造福特品牌,并继续推行‘一个福特’的计划,为全世界的消费者们提供最好的轿车和卡车。”

为了确保能平稳过渡,在交易结束之后,福特汽车将继续与沃尔沃汽车在多个领域内进行合作,但不会在沃尔沃汽车业务上持有任何所有权。

交易完成后,福特汽车还将在不同的阶段继续为沃尔沃汽车提供传动系统、冲压部件及其他汽车零部件。

为确保剥离过程的平稳完成,在过渡期间,作为交易的一部分,福特汽车也已承诺会在工程技术、信息技术、常规部件的模具等方面提供支持。

在知识产权使用支配方面,福特汽车与吉利也达成了协议。协议将使沃尔沃汽车与福特汽车双方都能推行各自的商业计划,并能合理地避免误用。这些协议也将允许沃尔沃汽车能把沃尔沃汽车使用的一部分福特汽车知识产权转让给第三方,包括吉利。

“沃尔沃团队已经为重整业务做出了无与伦比的工作,且在交易进行过程中,团队仍然专注于其计划的执行。”福特汽车首席财务官Lewis Booth表示,“由于福特在沃尔沃的持续投资,沃尔沃已经推出了其史上最好的产品阵容,并充分展现了它的核心价值——安全、品质、环保和时尚的斯堪的纳维亚风格的设计!”

“我们期待能与沃尔沃汽车继续合作,并祝愿它的管理团队、员工和新的东家在未来取得成功!”

“吉利向福特汽车对于沃尔沃品牌的管理深表敬意,在下一个阶段当沃尔沃开始融入吉利的时候,我们也期待着能与福特汽车继续合作。”吉利控股集团有限公司董事长李书福表示。

沃尔沃汽车集团首席执行官Stephen Odell也表示:“沃尔沃管理团队完全支持福特汽车将沃尔沃汽车出售给吉利。我们相信这对业务而言是一个正确的结果,也将为沃尔沃汽车提供必要的资源包括资本投资等,从而可以加强业务和在未来继续推进业务。”

“吉利非常支持沃尔沃汽车的业务和管理团队。我们期待着在沃尔沃汽车和吉利之间建立起深厚的联系,也期待着与福特汽车保持深厚的联系,在那些能确保平顺过渡的领域继续合作!”

FORD REACHES AGREEMENT TO SELL VOLVO CARS AND RELATED ASSETS TO GEELY; SALE EXPECTED TO CLOSE IN THIRD QUARTER

DEARBORN, Mich., 28, 2010 – Ford Motor Company [NYSE: F] today announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to sell Volvo Car Corporation and related assets to Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Company Limited.

The sale is expected to close in the third quarter of 2010, and is subject to customary closing conditions, including receipt of applicable regulatory approvals.

The purchase price for Volvo Cars and related assets (primarily intellectual property) is $1.8 billion (U.S.), which will be paid in the form of a note in the amount of $200 million (U.S.), and the remainder in cash. The cash portion of the purchase price will be adjusted at close for customary purchase price adjustments relating to pension deficits, debt, cash and working capital, the net effect of which could be a significant decrease in the cash proceeds to Ford.

“Volvo is a great brand with an excellent product lineup. This agreement provides a solid foundation for Volvo to continue to build its business under Geely’s ownership,” said Alan Mulally, Ford’s president and CEO. “At the same time, the sale of Volvo will allow us to further sharpen our focus on building the Ford brand around the world and continue to deliver on our One Ford plan serving our customers with the very best cars and trucks in the world.”

Ford will continue to cooperate with Volvo Cars in several areas after the sale has been completed in order to ensure a smooth transition, but will not retain any ownership in the Volvo Cars business.

Following completion of the sale, Ford will continue to supply Volvo Cars with, for differing periods, powertrains, stampings and other vehicle components.

As part of the sale, Ford also has committed to provide engineering support, information technology, access to tooling for common components, and other selected services for a transition period to ensure a smooth separation process.

Ford and Geely have established agreements to govern the use of intellectual property; these agreements will allow both Volvo and Ford to deliver their business plans and provide appropriate safeguards against misuse. These agreements also will allow Volvo Cars to grant sublicenses to certain portions of Ford’s intellectual property used by Volvo Cars to third parties, including Geely.

“The Volvo team has done an exceptional job of restructuring its business and remaining focused on delivering its plan during the sale process,” said Lewis Booth, Ford’s chief financial officer. “With Ford’s continued investment in Volvo, it has launched its best-ever product range and remained true to its core values – safety, quality, environmental responsibility and modern Scandinavian design.

“We look forward to continuing to work with Volvo Cars, and wish the management team, employees and new owners every success for the future.”

“Zhejiang Geely would like to pay tribute to Ford’s stewardship of the Volvo brand, and we look forward to continued cooperation as Volvo embarks on the next stage of its evolution with Geely,” said Li Shufu, chairman of Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Company Limited.

Stephen Odell, CEO of Volvo Cars, added, “The Volvo management team fully endorses Ford’s sale of Volvo Cars to Geely. We believe this is the right outcome for the business, and will provide Volvo Cars with the necessary resources, including the capital investment, to strengthen the business and to continue to move it forward in the future.

“Geely has been very supportive of Volvo Cars’ business plans and management team. We look forward to building a strong relationship between Volvo Cars and Geely, and to maintaining a strong relationship with Ford in those areas where we will continue to work together to ensure a smooth transition.”
