Hyundai succeeded in concluding this stock disposal at no discount. Through these successive investment, Hyundai reaffirmed its policy selling its treasury stocks to strategic investors or long-term investors such as SWIB and CSFB while restraining itself from selling the stocks directly in the market to minimize the increase of floating stocks and the undesirable impact to its share price consequently. Hyundai will utilize the raised capital of US$200 Million to improve its capital structure and operation of business organizations.
