Worse to come for Fiat?
Fiat has already poured more money into Fiat Auto once this year. This caused the parent company to post a big loss in the first half of the year. The losses are now believed to be up to more than $1bn for the first nine months of the year. Fiat and its 20% partner General Motors are expected to refinance Fiat Auto as they continue negotiations to cut the losses by restructuring the company.
The problem is that it is not sure where the extra money is going to come from...
