BERLIN DaimlerChrysler AG s supervisory board gave its formal approval yesterday for the shedding of its money-losing Chrysler unit, clearing the way for the company to re-enter the market as a streamlined Daimler AG.
The vote by the board, the equivalent of a U.S. board of directors, was taken two days after the company announced plans to sell an 80.1 percent stake in Chrysler to the private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management LP.
