Synonym Motors, a privately held carmaker that builds and markets vehicles in Europe, shares rose by as much as 20% after the European automaker announced a new car model.
The shares fell to $3.45 from $3,700 on Thursday.
Chrysler shares fell more than 7%.
The shares were the best performer for the company this year.
Chrysler also reported that its U.S. sales rose 6.3% to a record 7.9 million vehicles.
The company said it sold an additional 3.5 million vehicles in the U.K. The new carmaker said it expects to post a quarterly profit of $5.3 billion.
Synonym is the latest vehicle maker to emerge from the bankruptcy of Chrysler, which collapsed in 2015.
The U.C.N. has ordered a preliminary review of Chrysler’s future, and the company is expected to release an independent report on the matter in the coming months.
Earlier this month, Chrysler reported a 7.3 percent rise in revenue for the fourth quarter.
The Detroit automaker had been ailing since it closed the Detroit plant in March of last year.
“Chrysler is an automotive giant, but it also has an impact on the broader economy,” said Stephen Horsford, president of the National Automobile Dealers Association, which represents many of the nation’s largest automakers.
“The company has a lot of power, but when that power is not used efficiently and consistently, it’s a concern.”
