People asked in the last days where Victor Muller was, well it seems like Di found out.
According to DI, a US investor plans to be part owner of Saab.
A major U.S. investor plans to become a part owner of Saab Automobile, which would provide opportunities to organize the plant. It said a source familiar with the Saab to the Financial Times.
Saab hopes that the agreement must be finalized by the end of the week or weekend, according to Di’s source.
Saab’s CEO and chairman Victor Muller has been in the U.S. for almost two weeks and chased capital. He has negotiated with several U.S. investors, writes DI.
“I can confirm that Victor Muller is working hard to provide both long term and short-term capital to create a stable situation for Saab. More than that, I can not comment,” said Ms Gustav from Saab’s information department.
I think this should be the end of the short term solutions. / RedJ
Thanks to Fredrik who sent an e-mail about it, and WD78 who also posted this in a comment. I was just about to make a post of it when I saw that RedJ just had done that. May I ask that before we go speculating in the comments about this, take a deep breath and keep in mind that we so far do not know so much about this yet. Hopefully we’ll get more information during the day or weekend! / Carl-Henrik
Hey Victor, since I know you read this, give me a call if you need a drink (or some extra caffeine) when you have a chance in NY. 😉 -Jeff

The Spanish ABC news-site has further news on the “Americans”. Manuel Alcazar, Managing director of Saab Spain, has told to the ABC newspaper that Victor Muller is now closing a contract with an American Investor to take over the EIB loan.
Eric Geers did tell the truth, and nobody asked him the right questions. 😉
