After the defection of the new administrator to succeed Lofalk, Saab has made a new proposal: Lars Soderqvist at Hökerberg & Söderqvist.
A little before 16 o’clock left the Saab and Victor Muller into a new draft of the administrator after Guy Lofalk to Vänersborg since Lars-Henrik Andersson dropped out of the mission. In the application, it is clear that Andersen did not drop out because he made a “change in the assessment of the preconditions for a successful reorganization.”
[Andersson]’s departure is not based on a pessimistic assessment of Saab. It also appears that Lars Soderqvist accepted the assignment.
On Hökerberg & Söderqvist’s website, it appears that Lars Soderqvist “has worked with financial issues since 1985 and specializes in business and civil matters in the financial field.”
Lars Soderqvist deals with insolvency matters as a bankruptcy trustee and administrator. He has handled the largest bankruptcy of all time, the Independent Group, and thus has experience in the management of larger companies.
As posted in comments, our favorite reporter from DI, Afroditi, caught up with Soderqvist on the phone in an interview. According to Soderqvist, he believes that the conditions of the new deal provide for a successful reconstruction.
“I have been informed and also given the opportunity to get confirmation from the parties involved on the preconditions for the plan. The confirmations have been of a nature that I have determined that the conditions for this will be successful, “says Lars Soderqvist. It goes without saying [that the plan will take hard work]. There is very much to handle, but also issues that are less complex.
As we know, the company must maintain proper cash flow during reorganization, and he added, “I’ve had that kind of confirmation on this to [be the case] financially, yes.” He added that Saab and Youngman will work to strengthen their liquidity for the hearing Monday. He wants to ensure that there is a sufficient plan to deal with the existing debts (salaries, taxes, etc.) before the hearing, adding “It is essential for my work,” but continued that he received confirmation that there will be more money in the account by Monday.
When asked if he might decide to drop the assignment, he remarked that he will work with what he’s given. “It was a good question,” he told DI. “I have not played as much insight into why the earlier defections have taken place. All I know is that Guy Lofalk not have read this latest plan… If I judge that there were conditions for reconstruction, then I obviously need to report it. But if I consider that the reconstruction has the potential to succeed, then I have no intention to step down during that time.”
