Chrysler Says Fiat Option Would Boost Ownership Stake to 61.86%

Chrysler Group LLC said majority owner Fiat SpA can boost its stake to 61.86 percent by exercising an option to acquire part of the holdings of a union retiree fund.

The United Auto Workers union’s retiree health-care trust, known as VEBA, would own the remaining 38.14 percent, the Auburn Hills, Michigan-based automaker said today in a regulatory filing. Fiat had said in a July 3 statement that exercising the option would boost its ownership to 61.8 percent. The price hasn’t been disclosed.
