Nissan – “No conspiracy inside against Ghosn”

The Nissan denies with determination, the latest reconstructions of the press of an alleged organized plan internally to oust the former president, Carlos Ghosn. “I know that on the books and on the organs of information has spoken of a conspiracy, but there is no evidence to support this thesis,” said Motoo Nagai, president of one of the committees of the board of directors, during the annual general meeting of shareholders.

The inquiry not only in the interior. L’arrest of Ghosn in the fall of 2018 at the latest has generated several speculations on a branch of the internal leaders who have orchestrated an investigation on its actions to expel him from the japanese company and block his goal of strengthening the integration with the Renault. Nagai, however, explained that the investigation Ghosn was also conducted in studies of external legal and not only for the initiative of senior management.

A long assembly. The shareholders have taken the opportunity of the meeting and the two hours of debate (almost the double compared to the forecast) to ask not only of the story Ghosn but also of other most important issues, starting from the strategies of revitalization. Under the fire of questions is finished, in particular, the chief executive officer Makoto Uchida, submitted to different questions on what are his plans to restore luster to a company’s reputation put to the test by the scandal and the bad of sales performance and financial results. Uchida, however, has reiterated its promise to submit its resignation in the case of the results are still unsatisfactory and little progress in the implementation of the industrial plan of the recent presentation: “At the last extraordinary meeting of the shareholders will, I prayed going to quit if the performance of Nissan does not improve. This line of conduct has not changed”.
