Following the restructuring of financial services in Europe and the United States, Stellantis today announced PSA Finance Nederland (PFN), a fully owned financing subsidiary of BPF (Banque PSA Finance), and DPCA have entered into an equity transfer agreement with Dongfeng Group, on the basis of which their respective shares in the JV Dongfeng Peugeot Citroen Auto Finance Company (DPCAFC) will be sold to Dongfeng Group, subject to regulatory approval. The new structure will align with “Dare Forward 2030” supporting the Company’s ‘asset light business model’ and the new brands set up.
“As we continue our push to drive profitable growth in China, we need to also reset our financial services offering in the country, as we have done in other major markets,” said Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares. “This move will greatly support our revival plan in the country while also driving a more seamless customer journey.”
The proposed transaction should be completed during the second half of 2022 once the required authorizations have been obtained from the relevant anti-trust authorities and banking / finance regulators.
