Trollhättan, Sweden: Swedish Automobile N.V. (Swan) announces it is in discussion with Zhejiang Youngman Lotus Automobile Co. Ltd. (Youngman) and a bank in China about an equity interest in Swan. The discussions include a short term solution to enable Saab Automobile to pay the November wages and continue reorganization. The outcome of the discussions is still uncertain. Any possible transaction would be subject to the approval of the relevant stakeholders.
Swan will keep the market informed of any developments.
This just confirms what we have heard yesterday. Now we have to wait for GM and the NDRC to approve it. I hope for the Saab employees that the short term solution is not also awaiting approval.
