Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) said today that it would use its purchase of South Korea's Ssangyong Motor to become a global player in the sports utility vehicle market. Pawan Goenka, president of M&M's automotive and farm sector, said the merger would help both companies expand in the global market.
"We believe that Ssangyong and Mahindra make powerful companies to create a global SUV brand," he told reporters after the Indian company signed a preliminary agreement to buy a controlling stake in Ssangyong. The company is South Korea's smallest carmaker, mainly a manufacturer of low-priced but robust SUVs such as 'Rexton', 'Kyron' and 'Actyon' that sell globally. It also makes sedans. M&M shares closed lower at Rs617 on the BSE; while the benchmark Sensex shut at 18,311.
