Isuzu, Volvo to forge partnership; Isuzu to buy UD Trucks

TOKYO, Dec 18 (Reuters) - Japan’s Isuzu Motors and Sweden’s Volvo AB said on Wednesday they had agreed to form a strategic alliance in commercial vehicles that will include the sale of Volvo’s subsidiary UD Trucks to Isuzu.

Isuzu and Volvo said in a statement they would explore opportunities for more collaboration in commercial vehicle businesses across global regions and products, such as light- and medium-duty trucks.

Volvo said the enterprise value for UD Trucks was 250 billion yen ($2.3 billion). It said the transaction would have a positive impact on the Volvo Group’s operating income of about SEK 2 billion ($208 million) and increase its net cash position by SEK 22 billion.
