HONG KONG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Elliott Advisors (HK) Limited, which advises various Elliott-affiliated
funds (together “Elliott”), announced today that it collectively holds a

pleased that Hyundai Motor Group has taken a first step towards an
improved and more sustainable corporate structure.

optimize balance sheets, and enhance capital returns at each of the
companies. Elliott looks forward to engaging with management and other
stakeholders directly on these issues, and to offering recommendations
