Santander Consumer USA Holdings Inc. is in exploratory discussions with FCA US LLC after FCA expressed its desire to establish a captive U.S. auto finance unit in the future.


FCA indicated that acquiring Chrysler Capital is one option it will consider.


The Chrysler Capital brand operates under a private label financing agreement between SC and FCA, which is in year six of a 10-year term. Under the equity option agreement, FCA has the right to purchase, at fair value, an equity participation in the Chrysler Capital portion of the company's business.
