Renault SA says it has sold the remaining 17.88% equity stake it held in Nissan Diesel Motor Co. Ltd. The French auto maker says it did not view the assets, which it has held since acquiring the shares as part of the global alliance with Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. in 1999, as core to its business, clearing the way for the divestiture. The 43.6 million shares were sold to J.P. Morgan Securities Ltd., which plans to sell them on the open market.
