Shares in SsangYong Motor leaped on Thursday after a local media report late Wednesday said a foreign firm had submitted a letter of intent (LOI) to buy a stake in the struggling SUV maker.

A Ssangyong Motor official denied the report, but told Reuters the company had started the sale process and was currently working on due diligence.
