MMC may sell part of stake in Urawa Reds
TOKYO (Jiji Press) — Mitsubishi Motors Corp. plans to sell part of its equity stake in the subsidiary that operates the Urawa Red Diamonds, a Japanese professional soccer team better known as the Urawa Reds, informed sources said Monday.
The Japanese automaker is considering lowering its stake in the Urawa Reds operator to below 20 percent from the current 50.6 percent, the sources said.
Mitsubishi Motors is slated to come under the aegis of domestic peer Nissan Motor Co. within this month, in order to rebuild its operations that have been damaged by its fuel efficiency data manipulation scandal.
