Default Hummer brand sold to Chinese manufacturer

Iconic Hummer brand sold to Chinese manufacturer - Yahoo! Finance

General Motors Co. and Sichuan Tengzhong Heavy Industrial Machinery Corp. finally signed the much-anticipated deal to sell the brand on Friday.
Tengzhong will get an 80 percent stake in the company, while Hong Kong investor Suolang Duoji, who indirectly owns a big stake in Tengzhong through an investment company called Sichuan Huatong Investment Holding Co., will get 20 percent. The investors will also get Hummer's nationwide dealer network.
Financial terms were not disclosed, although a person briefed on the deal said the sale price was around $150 million. The person did not want to be identified because the terms were being kept private. GM's bankruptcy filing last summer said that the iconic brand with military roots could bring in $500 million or more.

Is that so? I remember seeing a thread talking about the possible sales, but couldn't find the same when I searched for it.
MODS: please merge the threads if another such thread exits.
