(This January 7 story corrects headline to clarify four senior executives are leaving the company, not its four top executives.). (Reuters) - AutoNation Inc said on Monday four senior executives including chief operating officer are leaving the company as it restructures to cut costs and expects automotive retail to be challenging this year. The top U.S. auto retailer is consolidating its regional structure from three regions to two and expects the restructuring to save about $50 million annually, it said.

AutoNation did not immediately respond to a query about any potential job cuts due to the restructuring.
MOSCOW/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S, Treasury believes it can curb the influence of Oleg Deripaska over aluminum giant Rusal despite concerns the Russian oligarch may still be able to pull the strings of his business empire from behind the scenes, Rusal and its parent company En+ were hit with U.S, sanctions in April when Washington blacklisted billionaire Deripaska along with several other influential Russians because of their ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin, After months of negotiations, Deripaska agreed in late 2018 to reduce his stake in En+ to 44.95 percent from 70 sterling silver texas rope border cufflinks percent in a deal with the U.S, Treasury Department that allowed the punitive measures against Rusal and En+ to be lifted..
While the announcement was a relief to major companies that depend on aluminum, U.S. congressional Democrats demanded further legislation to ensure that Deripaska abides by the deal 'in letter and in spirit'. They believe U.S. President Donald Trump let Deripaska off the hook following intense lobbying by some European companies and governments worried about the impact of high aluminum prices and the fate of workers at Rusal’s operations in Europe. While the voting rights in En+ under Deripaska’s control are now capped at 35 percent, votes controlled by potential allies could boost that percentage above 50 and allow the Russian tycoon to influence strategic decisions.
Under the new structure, Deripaska’s long-term partner Glencore, a Swiss-based commodities trading company, gets 10.55 percent of the sterling silver texas rope border cufflinks votes while Kremlin-controlled bank VTB holds onto 7.35 percent, according to the voting structure published by En+, As part of the deal, four U.S.-nominated independent trustees now control the voting rights for another 37.7 percent of En+ shares held by Deripaska, former family members, his charitable foundation, VTB and some other shareholders, The remaining votes in En+, which will have a 56.9 percent stake in Rusal once the ownership restructuring is complete, are controlled by institutional and retail investors..
STRETCHED THIN. The deal contains multiple measures, including the threat of sanctions, to prevent a scenario in which Deripaska could exercise control over the companies at board level by acting in concert with other shareholders. But many of those measures operate on the basis of self-reporting: the companies must inform the U.S. Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of any attempt by Deripaska and other shareholders to form a coalition. Elizabeth Rosenberg, a former U.S. Treasury official at the Center for a New American Security think-tank, said OFAC, which administers U.S. sanctions regimes against Iran, Venezuela and elsewhere, may not have the resources to track Deripaska’s role.
“I am worried that, in fact, the task may be beyond them and that in fact they are stretched extremely thin, with an array of other priorities ., and that they won’t have the bandwidth to follow up adequately,” Rosenberg said, A U.S, Treasury Department spokesman sterling silver texas rope border cufflinks who spoke on condition of anonymity said the deal was robust enough to sever Deripaska’s control over Rusal, En+ and power company ESE - as well as block any attempts to circumvent the rules, “Those who transact business for or on his behalf run the risk of being sanctioned themselves, including VTB Bank or Glencore should they choose to work on Deripaska’s behalf,” said the spokesman..
