Kerkorian left out of Daimler list


A top DaimlerChr­ysler AG executive is scheduled to meet in New York this week with bidders for the German automaker’s Chrysler unit but it appears that billionair­e Kirk Kerkorian’s Tracinda Corp isn’t on the invitation list, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Tracinda, which announced a surprise $4.5 billion bid for Chrysler, was hoping to be included in the scheduled round of meetings with Rudiger Grube, a DaimlerChr­ysler management board member.

Grube will meet representa­tives from the tandem of Blackstone Group and Centerbrid­ge Capital Partners and others.
