Peugeot S.A. (Groupe PSA) and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (FCA) have announced their 50:50 merger. This collaboration was defined in the Combination Agreement that was announced on December 18, 2019, last year. The new group will be called Stellantis.
Stellantis is rooted in the Latin verb "stello" meaning "to brighten with stars". It draws inspiration from this new and ambitious alignment of storied automotive brands and strong company cultures. The process of identifying the new name began soon after the Combination Agreement was announced in 2019 and the senior management of both companies have been closely involved throughout, supported by Publicis Group.
The Stellantis name will be used exclusively at the Group level, as a Corporate brand. The next step in the process will be the unveiling of a logo, but the names and the logos of the Stellantis Group's constituent brands (PSA and FCA) will remain unchanged.
As previously stated, completion of the merger project is expected to occur in the first quarter of 2021, subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by both companies' shareholders at their respective Extraordinary General Meetings and the satisfaction of antitrust and other regulatory requirements.
