After announcing the Youngman offer, which is quite high, I thought Brightwell would retire. Wrong thought. Zamier Ahmed of Brightwell Holding said in a telephone interview to Bloomberg today that plans are in the offing for a full Saab offer. With that, we'll definitely have two buyers bidding for Saab next week.
Unlike Youngman, Brightwell hopes to build GM licenses to build Saab 9-5 and Saab 9-4x. Youngman, however, seems to be able to do without GM completely.
Rachel Pang made strong today with just over € 550 million. A “Beauty Contest” is currently running in China in which Youngman wants to present himself to the Swedish delegation as an optimal investor.
Brightwell will follow suit, with an offer that has to be higher and a concept that has to be better than the Chinese. Now comes the exciting question of whether our third investor will also go public and participate. Or whether you disembark and put the Saab story on file.
The Saab brand is more interesting to buyers than you think. That's good. The next days will be exciting. We stay tuned.
