"Chang wrote that Hyundai was "in the process of divesting its ownership interest in SMART" but it would ensure "that the economically important jobs in the Luverne, Alabama community are preserved.""

Hundai is selling off their controlling share, but they are going to keep buying from the company like they always have. Basically they are just going "so when this happens again in 6 months, you can not blame us, we aren't in control"
