The Peugeot family holds 36.8% of the voting rights in French car maker Peugeot Citroen and 25.3% of shares after a capital increase, the stock market regulator said.

Peugeot completed its EUR1bn capital increase in late March as it sealed a broad alliance with General Motors to prop up their ailing European operations, Dow Jones noted.

The company had said the capital increase would permit the funding of investments “related to projects that are core to the global strategic alliance with General Motors”.
