This confirmation comes from Dr. Dieter Zetsche, the Chairman of the Board of Management of DaimlerChrysler, who states: “In this context, I can confirm that we are talking with some of the potential partners who have shown a clear interest.” Ambiguity at its finest, continuing in his next statement: “But it is also true that we need to keep all options open, and that I cannot disclose any details, because we need to have the maximum scope for maneuver.”

I guess more will be discussed at the company's Annual Meeting, which will take place today, in Berlin. “This means, that after reviewing all options, we will finally decide for the option that best meets our criteria.
