The euro has reached a record high against the dollar, and that is partly to blame for rumors of Cerberus' difficulty in getting the money to pay for Chrysler. Cerberus is paying DaimlerChrysler $7.4 billion for 80.1% of Chrysler Group, but it is trying to borrow $20 billion. With interest rates on the rise, Cerberus wants to get money while terms are at their best. Yet with the market enduring a soft spot, Chrysler's below-investment-grade credit ratings, its 2-year prognosis of more red ink and the dollar declining, skittish investors are concerned that Cerberus might not be able to get the job done. Cerberus Chairman John Snow, however, said he expects the deal to close this quarter as planned.
