China's Guangzhou Automobile says no plan to buy Fiat Chrysler

“Currently, we don’t have plans to acquire Fiat Chrysler,” Guangzhou Automobile spokeswoman Wu Yunchong told Reuters in a statement.

    FCA shares soared on Monday after trade publication Automotive News reported the carmaker rebuffed a takeover from an unidentified Chinese carmaker. Several Chinese carmakers have since publicly denied they plan to buy FCA.
