Peugeot to axe 1,500 more jobs as Euro sales funk deepens
While 2012 saw the automaker liquidate some assets to maintain its cash reserves, that won't be an option next year. The company has been burning through those funds at a rate of around 200 million euros per month, and has announced its net debt will be somewhere around 3 billion euros at the end of 2012. In response, Moodys cut the automaker's long term debt rating to three levels below investment grade. In October, the French government voted to give Peugeot up to 7 billion euros in new bonds, and the measure should be fully adopted by December 19.
