The court today announced that they have received a petition from the receivers to add another receiver to the team. The receivers have nominated Kent Hägglund from DLA Nordic.
“Circumstances exists that could mean a conflict of interest for both receivers in questions pertaining to the ‘SAAB’ trademark, the griffin logo and the SAAB company [“firmadominanten SAAB”] and related issues.” (from the petition filed by the receivers)
It is also worth pointing out that the unions have been talking about requesting new receivers since they feel they have not received enough information. The workers need information pertaining to salaries, and be told when they should apply for unemployment benefits.
Hopefully adding a third receiver will speed up the process. This seems to be a better solution than start over from scratch with a completely new receiver team.
At least one of the receivers have owned several Saabs. I believe Saab’s future is in the hands of someone with good intentions. And that counts for a lot.
