NEW YORK (AP) -- Chrysler's chief executive says his company hasn't reached any new deals with other automakers but has talked with outside parties interested in working with it.
In a memo to employees obtained Monday by The Associated Press, Bob Nardelli says Chrysler doesn't comment on its private meetings.
But he says the automaker has spoken with outsiders interested in "exploring future possibilities."
This comes after media reports this weekend that said Chrysler LLC and General Motors Corp. were in talks about a possible acquisition or other kind of combination.
Nardelli's memo notes that Chrysler already has announced agreements with Nissan Motor Co. and Volkswagen AG to jointly make some vehicles.
But he says Chrysler hadn't formed any new agreements and has no announcements to make right now.
