On August 3, 2007, DaimlerChysler completed the sale of Chrysler Group to Cerberus Capital Management.

Profits declined 14 percent in its second quarter amid the sale of Chrysler. Daimler is

taking a $3.38 billion charge from transferring 80.1 percent of Chrysler to private-equity firm Cerberus Capital Management for more than $7 billion.

New Daimler cars now account for just over half of revenues; trucks, vans and buses for one-third; and the lucrative financial-services unit represents the rest. The company employs about 375,000 people worldwide.

The company expects improved cash flow and a better balance sheet, thanks in part to shedding the $20 billion in Chrysler post-retirement health-care liabilities. Meanwhile, the new generation of Mercedes C-Class sedans, the company's best-seller, should help this year's bottom line.
