Discussions About Sale of Saab Property Ongoing
Trollhättan, Sweden: – Spyker Cars N.V. (Spyker) announces that discussions about the sale and lease back of the Saab property are still ongoing as indicated in earlier statements. Spyker expects to make an announcement about the sale of the Saab property shortly, provided that final agreement has been reached.
From my point of view this is not news at all, as I thought they were working on that no matter what the news agencies said. But it is nevertheless interesting to know that they can have a solution for that shortly (till Friday??).
It is the second positive press release for this morning, which is good to keep the positive mood arround Saab while the supplier discussions are on-going. 🙂
The local Newspaper TTela.se says that the Swedish real state company Hemfosa may be the one that is willing to buy the Saab property.
TTela refers to an article from the Swedish real Estate News magazine Fastighetsvarlden (Real Estate World).
Hemfosas’s CEO, Jens Engwall, says
– We have been approached by Spyker and met with representatives, it is true. We have held a dialogue and we’ll see what happens. An affair is possible because the Bank(EIB) has released the pledge says Jens Engwall the property world.
And further down the article he also says:
– We see opportunities for logistics properties in the area. With a new double-lane Highway from Gothenburg to Trollhättan, Trollhättan has a very interesting situation. Although Saab’s current premises may have a different use. There are modern facilities, with high ceilings and columns, but [no] many disruptive, “said Engwall to Fastighetsvärlden.
- They must only agree on the prize.
- The EIB has moved
- Saab would only rent back the buildings they use, Hemfosa would try to use the others in different ways
