Tengzhong to Establish Offshore SPE for HUMMER Purchase

Without getting TOO technical or confusing, an SPE is typically set up by a company to separate the “sponsor” company (in this case Tengzhong) from another venture, thus reducing financial risk to the main company. It will also allow Tengzhong to setup an organizational structure for minority stake-holders, such as a well-known Chinese chemical company CEO.
