GM this week decided against selling its European operations, citing improved business for the u-turn.

"Right now we're focusing back on the core business, which is automotive parts, and we have no discussions going on right now on any other vehicle-type acquisitions," added Walker.

Magna’s shares have risen by 10 per cent following the collapse of the deal and the company reported a surprise increase in third quarter profit.
