- Mr Luo announced his resignation from the global safety systems supplier earlier this week as it closes in on finalising a $US1.59 billion ($A2.01b) deal to acquire embattled airbag manufacturer Takata, which is embroiled in a global recall involving more than 100 million vehicles including around 2.3 million in Australia.
