Hyundai Group said it is to go ahead with plans to spin-off its Hyundai Motor Co. unit making it more independent, reports Bloomberg News (1/8/00). The decision by South Korea`s largest industrial group bows to both Government and investor pressure in them wanting to reduce the founding family`s management control over the car maker. It also allays fears that profits from the automaker were to be used in bailing out other Hyundai-owned companies facing cash shortages.
