PARIS, May 23 (Reuters) – Renault and Nissan
are reviewing the ownership structure of their
carmaking alliance but are unlikely to merge into a single
listed entity this year or next, Chief Executive Carlos Ghosn
said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a Bloomberg conference, Ghosn reiterated that
the carmakers were examining ways to consolidate the
Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance and assuage doubts about its
survival after his eventual departure. Renault currently owns
43.4 percent of Nissan, which controls Mitsubishi Motors
.

Asked whether this could transform the carmakers into a
single listed entity in 2018 or 2019, however, Ghosn answered:
“I don’t think so.” Reuters reported in March that Renault and
Nissan were discussing a deeper tie-up.
