      FCA - what's next?

      Curious about the Renault merger deal... is every car company going to merge like the home appliance industry?
      I have only bad memories of the name Renault from back in the 80's. But what do I know?

      Not really, it looks like that was just that one deal that was dropped, which was effectively round one of negotiations. It's a complicated situation, because Nissan (which is 43.4% owned by Renault) doesn't want to get in bed with a new entity taking over such an enormous stake in their company, and the French government (which owns 15% of Renault) wants to retain an inordinate amount of influence over the new company (like they do with Renault).

      FCA wants to be the third-largest automaker in the world behind Toyota and VW. They aren't going to get there selling garbage Fiats in North America, and there's only so much they can squeeze out of Jeep. Renault is a good target for a merger/acquisition these days, what with their (and Nissan's) "leadership issues".

      Any merger fca does will not be for north america. It will be for other parts of the world where they either want to build on sales or need the sales. Renault is the company that fit's in best with them

      these mega merger companies tend to rot from the inside too and fall apart.

      Car companies have merged and separated for years and years. This would be nothing new, and actually just the norm. Easier to by a company with an established product then to build one from the ground up. You can then also show their sales as an increase to your sales which shows well to the markets, your stock price and ultimately the investors which it is all about. If you can't make your own sales projections, but someone elses.
