No Agreement between BMW Group and Alchemy Concerning the Sale of Rover
Munich, Germany - BMW and Alchemy have terminated their negotiations. No agreement was reached on the sale of Rover Car Operations to Alchemy. The negotiating partners were finally unable to come to an understanding with respect to certain conditions of contract.

BMW Group will now pursue alternative routes to bring to an end its involvement in Rover Car Operations. Those routes include the sale of Rover Car Operations or its closure. A decision which of those alternatives will be implemented will be taken during the course of next month.

This situation does not affect the preparations for the transfer of the Land Rover brand to Ford, which are conducted with high priority and in a straight forward manner. They will be concluded according to plan by the middle of this year.
