In Sweden, a new, difficult week awaits us. We Saab fans are used to grief, the situation is not new. So what is there in Trollhättan today? The employees of Saab come back to work and are informed about the current situation.
Wages are due this week for the workers. Up-to-date information, including from the union side, says that wages will flow on time. Not new, however, from the supplier side. Saab supplier Plastal is a representative of many national suppliers ready to supply the carmaker again.
However, the conditions are tough, at least for the time being. “Cash on delivery” - that is, money at the loading ramp, an idea that is not realistic for a company of this size. The work to replace the EIB loan is now continuing. Vladimir Antonov's spokesman emphasized again today to Göteborg Posten that his boss is ready to join Saab as an investor after the loan has been repaid.
A corresponding message is expected "promptly". That would be nice, because the tremor has been way too long for my taste. In Sweden traders are disembarking, which is understandable given the length of the drought. However, you have to look carefully here before we fall into depression. Some terminate the dealership contract, others take a "break". So give Saab another chance.
The friends of Saabsunited have recently described the situation in Sweden so that I can save myself the translation.
Finally, let's take a look at the Swedish Automobile share. Today it is breaking away from its all-time low and moving slightly upwards. We are currently at 71 cents in Amsterdam, which makes Saab a bargain. So if you are hiding an inheritance in your savings stocking, you can now buy a cheap car manufacturer 😉
As always, we stay cool, we work on solving the problems. All we can do is keep our fingers crossed.
Yes, and finally our national Saab situation. The blogger meets today with Jan-Philipp Schuhmacher, the head of Saab Germany. Maybe there will be good news from this site.
