In Germany, preparations are in full swing to offer Saab customers a program for the IAA. In Sweden, the clouds are getting denser and the press comments are getting sharper.
There are several speculations in the media. The one possibility that is being considered is that Saab will go into reconstruction in the next few days. Reconstruction is a type of Swedish bankruptcy process that would allow the company to make an orderly restart. The debate is fueled by the fact that the half-yearly figures will not be presented today but only next week. In addition, there is still no statement on wages and salaries.
The journalist, Saab Insider and Saab friend Jonas Fröberg led a live chat for the Svabka Dagbladet today on the Saab situation and possible reconstruction. What he said did not sound good, especially considering that he has always spoken for Saab.
The press has always liked rubbing against Victor Muller, and today one deliberates in public whether the CEO is punishable by his behavior. In principle, Saab insolvent, at least in the Swedish accounts only a few million were found. Even if next week 25 million kroner flow from the real estate deal, it will not be enough.
Saab denies all rumors. It's getting tight, that was foreseeable. But, once again I'm writing - it doesn't have to be the end. There is an opportunity in every crisis. So we should stay cool and keep looking at what's going on.
At the IAA alternative program, we and Saab Germany are working together with a whole network of Saab fans. Especially in this situation it can be more important than ever to have a public appearance at the right time.
As I always say - giving up is not an alternative.
