Fiat Chrysler: From Alliance to Acquisition
In 2009, Chrysler went bankrupt. When it emerged from bankruptcy, it was owned by the U.S. government, the Canadian government, the United Auto Workers, and Fiat. Chrysler and Fiat combined their strengths to find success. Chrysler repaid its loans and repurchased its shares from the U.S. and Canadian governments. Over time, Fiat continued to buy shares of Chrysler. In 2009, Fiat owned 20% of Chrysler. By 2014, Fiat owned 100% of Chrysler. The relationship that started as an alliance in 2009 became an acquisition in 2014.
