Peugeot has not asked French state to take stake: PM
GRENOBLE, France (Reuters) - French Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said on Friday that PSA Peugeot Citroen (PEUP.PA) had not asked the state to take a stake in it and that the matter was not on the agenda.
The comment came a day after PSA, suffering falling sales in a depressed European car market, highlighted the scale of its woes by taking a 4.1 billion euro ($5.5 billion) write-down on the value of its plant and other automotive assets.
