To the Editor:

I want to clarify a story that appeared on Page 1 of your Nov. 19 issue ("Premier Automotive merger sparks worry").

The strategy for the Premier Automotive Group is sound, providing an unmatched portfolio of high-end brands to Ford Motor Co. Key elements of this strategy include nurturing distinctive brands that complement, not overlap, each other; maintaining product integrity to support premium prices; and achieving synergies in investment, engineering and distribution. Lincoln and Mercury - and Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo - all will play a major part in our plans.
