Confusion on our Company Name - It's Still A123

Company Logo Unchanged

Yesterday A123 Systems Inc i.e. the "old A123" made an 8-K filing with the SEC which changed its legal name to B456. This change was ironically made to reduce confusion about the difference between the A123 businesses which are now operating successfully under Wanxiang's ownership and those elements of the company still in the bankruptcy process.

The ongoing businesses in automotive, grid energy storage and lead acid replacement continue to operate under the A123 brand and our legal name is A123 Systems LLC. It's certainly forgivable that some media outlets have not correctly made the distinction between the old "Inc" and the new "LLC".


This is a wonderful post. I enjoyed the information lot. I will bookmark this page. Thanks for sharing this important information.
