The newspaper from Trollhättan, TTELA, states that Saab has been working since earlier this weekend on a Plan B for the short term financing.
This new short term financing doesn’t need any real estate transactions and thus permission from the EIB wouldn’t be needed. Don’t expect to hear more rumors or news about that until the whole thing is done, which should happen during this week.
It is a plan B, so it is for sure not the best solution for Saab, but it seems like the only way to move forward is by avoiding the bureaucrats.
Production has been stopped for the last three weeks, but the rest of the company has been working all the time, to either create the products we love or to get the financing problem solved. Now it’s time for us to be patient while we wait for good news. The solution will come, but maybe not as fast as many have hoped.
