The bankruptcy petition against “Saab Tools AB” at the Vänersborg District Court has not yet been withdrawn this morning and is suspended until August 15, so it can be re-opened at any time. This is the news that is less good, that we don't really want to hear.
Update: Lars Thunberg of Sweparts Verktyg AB told the local media that the bankruptcy petition had been withdrawn this morning. He was very satisfied with the solution, now you can go about the normal business. The bankruptcy petition is still published on the website of the district court.
