DC spokesperson Thomas Froehlich said, "We want to sell, but we're not under any time pressure." This statement doesn't seem to jibe with another report in a South Korean newspaper claiming that DaimChry is going to sell off its shares as early as next week. The article has no direct sources (so I guess it could be completely made up), but indicated that the selloff was an attempt to make funds available for DC's Chinese investments. This makes sense, since DaimlerChyrsler's relationship with Hyundai went down the tubes in May after it was announced that DC would be producing Mercedes sedans with China's Beijing Automotive Industry Holding Company.
