30 pre-restructuring
Period of 30 days, Chrysler has completed a series of major adjustments, on the one hand for the continuation of government assistance and to maintain and ready to continue to operate; On the other hand, as well as possible to clear away obstacles to bankruptcy reorganization.

Chrysler in the 30 days of efforts although the results achieved over the past few years with its creditors, the outcome of the negotiations, but still unable to return to days of bankruptcy reorganization is to enable the entire enterprise and to maximize the interests of creditors to be the best way to save.

United States Bankruptcy Code is the protection of Chapter 11 bankruptcy and reorganization proceedings, in accordance with the legal procedures, Chrysler can maintain control of the business and continue to operate day-to-day operations (including manufacturing, sales, procurement, etc.) at the same time to solve its financial and operations issues.
