The article reports that Chrysler ranked first on "Forbes Asia's" list of top 10 newcomers to America's Largest Private Companies. Last publicly traded in 1998, prior to its ill-fated merger with Mercedes, the U.S. auto maker is now majority owned by private equity firm Cerberus Capital Management. The firms included in the list either have too few shareholders to be required to file financial statements with the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission or shares whose ownership is restricted to some group, like family members or employees.
