Santander Chrysler Agreement

The change “calls into question the fact that the two companies are looking forward to a successful relationship for the remaining years of the agreement,” SCUSA spokeswoman Laurie Kight told Auto Finance News. “The $60 million was paid to the CFA on June 28 in additional commercial consideration,” she said. CONTACTS: Investor RelationsEvan in 2013, FCA and Santander signed a 10-year financing contract under which the Chrysler Capital brand was created. At the time, Santander was paying a fee of $150 million. DALLAS, July 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Santander Consumer USA Holdings Inc. (NYSE: SC) (“SC” or “the company”), which operates as Chrysler Capital, announced today that it has entered into an agreement with FCA US LLC (“FCA”) to amend the Master Private Label Financing Agreement (the “Chrysler Agreement”). Under the Chrysler agreement, valid for the seventh year of a 10-year term, SC is the preferred provider of consumer credit, leases and dealer loans to FCA. Santander Consumer USA and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles have updated their private label financing agreement, Santander said on Monday. The lender will make a one-time payment of $60 million to FCA under the revised agreement. Santander Consumer USA Holdings Inc. (NYSE: SC) is a fully-in-service consumer finance company focused on vehicle financing, third-class service and first-class service for our more than 2.7 million customers across the credit spectrum. The company, which began in 1997 with the creation of tempe catch-up contracts, had an average portfolio of assets under management of approximately $54 billion as of March 31, 2019 and is headquartered in Dallas.

( “We are pleased to have entered into a mutually beneficial agreement that will strengthen our partnership with FCA in the future,” said Scott Powell, Chief Executive Officer of SC. “This amendment creates an operational framework for the remainder of our contract and positions us to continue to help FCA succeed.” The updated contract recalibrates performance targets and cancels a toll agreement, as Santander has indicated. The toll agreement put the contract on hold, meaning the two companies acted under the agreement as part of the agreement in force on April 30, 2018. The status of the 2013 financing agreement was called into question in June 2018, when then-CEO Sergio Marchionne told investors that FCA would begin its own captivity, either through acquisition or the creation of a financial company. As the mid-term of the 10-year contract approached last year, FCA began buying Santander`s Chrysler portfolio to create its own captivity. After nearly a year of consultation, FCA indicated in a first-quarter earnings call that it was no longer in captivity in the United States. Instead, it focuses on the current contract with SCUSA. Since signing the Chrysler contract in 2013, Santander, which is in the position of Chrysler Capital, has received more than $55.5 billion in auto loans and $35.3 billion in leases, according to an SEC submission. As part of the change, SC will provide a one-time payment of $60 million to FCA. The amendment also ends the july 2018 toll agreement between the parties, under which each party retained its rights, rights and defences, as they existed on April 30, 2018, with respect to Chrysler`s agreement.

As part of a toll agreement, companies set the statute of limitations when negotiating certain conditions over a period of time. Laurie Kight, senior vice president of communications at Santander Consumer USA, said the toll agreement “prevented the parties from communicating under the existing contract, while we have had ongoing discussions to find a mutually beneficial way forward.” The amended pact
