"We plan to promote the early termination of the rehabilitation process through the completion of the M&A, such as selecting an advisor in the shortest possible time in consultation with the Seoul Bankruptcy Court," SsangYong said in a statement.

For 2020, SsangYong's operating loss stood at 449 billion Won which is equivalent to $401.76 million. In 2019, the operating loss of the company was 282 billion Won. The company's revenue too fell 19 per cent to three trillion Won in 2020. The company is also under severe debt as its vehicles sales for 2020 fell 20 per cent, from a year earlier to 107,416 units.

It was last month that Mahindra & Mahindra received clearance from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to reduce its ownership in SsangYong Motor. The Indian auto giant has a 74.65 per cent stake in the Korean car company but has been looking to divest its stake in the firm since last year. Mahindra bought over SsangYong in 2010, when it was near bankruptcy. But unfortunately, it wasn't able to turn the fortunes around of the Korean company.
