The merger between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and PSA Group is reportedly progressing smoothly, with the involved parties announcing general meetings for their respective shareholders on Wednesday. Scheduled to take place on January 4th, the summit is being held “in order to approve the merger of their companies to allow the creation of Stellantis, which will become the world’s fourth largest automobile manufacturer by volume,” according to a joint release.

Draft resolutions and the general agenda that will be submitted to the vote of the shareholders of each company, as well as the terms of participation in related meetings, will be made publicly available on November 23rd. We will also be waiting on regulatory approvals in South America and Europe, the latter of which already seems to have been handled.

The duo has already released the rather bland Stellantis logo, which is about as generic as it gets, and made concessions to appease markets concerned about how the merger might affect competitiveness. This includes taking steps to avoid achieving market dominance skirting antitrust violations in the European commercial van sector and a few similar concessions in Brazil.

Meanwhile, Stellantis has already been cleared by several antitrust authorities in the United States, China, Japan, and Russia. Corporate leadership has previously said they would like to see the merger completed by the end of the first quarter. Based on the companies’ current pace, that absolutely seems possible.

Once formed, Stellantis will be headquartered in Amsterdam. However regional HQs will continue to exist in Auburn Hills, Paris, and Milan.
