Chrysler LLC Statement Re Federal Assistance Received

Chrysler Chairman and CEO Bob Nardelli said on behalf of the leadership team, that he was pleased to report that the Company's discussions with the Treasury Department have been completed, and that today (January 2), Chrysler received an initial $4 billion loan to help bridge the current financial crisis.

"We recognize the magnitude of the effort by the Treasury Department to complete the multiple financial arrangements and appreciate their confidence in Chrysler. We would like to thank the many constituents who worked with us to meet the loan requirements. This initial loan will allow the Company to continue an orderly restructuring, while pursuing our vision to build the fuel-efficient, high-quality cars and trucks people want to buy, will enjoy driving and will want to buy again."

Cerberus Capital Management, LP, informed the Company that productive discussions continue between Chrysler Financial and the U.S. Treasury Department regarding Chrysler Financial's loan and a closing is expected in due course.
