**GM SUPPLIER LOSES GROUND**
South Korea' SL Corp slumped as much as 6.6
percent after a brokerage cut its target price on the head lamp
maker, citing suspension of production of the Chevrolet Malibu
sedan in the United States by its customer General Motors Co
"As sales of the new Malibu remains lacklustre, GM's U.S.
plant suspended production for the model in February after its
December stoppage," said Oh Seung-june, an analyst at Woori
Investment & Securities, in a report.
The Malibu mid-sized sedan accounts for 6 percent of SL's
global lamp production capacity, Oh said.
Automotive News earlier reported that GM planned to idle the
Kansas plant that makes the Malibu for two weeks, before
resuming output from the week of Feb 17.
