Aston Martin shareholders approve third capital injection this year

Aston Martin mentioned Friday its shareholders authorized a plan to inject 125 million lbs ($168 million) in new cash as the automaker tries to turnaround its dollars-losing business.

The cash injection, Aston Martin’s third this 12 months, was introduced in October alongside with designs that Mercedes-Benz would raise its stake in the British firm to up to 20 percent by 2023, building it a person of Aston Martin’s largest shareholders.

The October plan involves Mercedes getting shares in exchange for growing an existing source offer, offering Aston Martin entry to key Mercedes’ technological innovation such as hybrid and electric powered generate systems. It did not entail any funds from the German automaker.

A consortium led by Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll earlier this 12 months agreed to obtain up to 25 percent of Aston Martin.

The firm in June elevated 152 million lbs ($205 million) in equity.
