Zamier Ahmed turned to the press again today. What he had to say sounds interesting! Brightwell Holding will make an offer in the coming days, maybe over the next week. He is on schedule for the trustee trio, which expects the offers of investors in the next 14 days.
The interesting thing about the interview given by Zamier Ahmed Dagens Industri are the following statements:
"We are talking to GM and we are talking to a"seniora personer i toppen pa GM" "he said. By that he means someone at the very top who has something to say. Because Zamier Ahmed is confident that the GM licenses will be released so that production can start within a few weeks. Since I rate Zamier Ahmed as serious, this statement is very interesting. But it gets even better !
I don't want to talk about a plan B, it evokes negative memories. But Zamier Ahmed has “because you can build cars without GM”. According to him, Brightwell Holding has its own platform. He says to rule out misunderstandings and translation errors ”egenutvecklad platform". So developed in-house, owned by Brightwell, not the Saab PhöeniX platform.
That makes it interesting and speculative. That Brightwell is involved in a manufacturer of electric vehicles, we know. That Brightwell has to do with the Turkish Fiat works is also known. The rumor that parts of the facilities in Trollhättan are to be dismantled, as reported by the Italian media, and that new production lines are said to be in Turkey, is unconfirmed. By contrast, Brightwell's subsidiaries have worked for other automakers in the past.
The question for Friday: Is possibly Fiat in the Brightwell boat? It is a question, not more, not less. Our nameless investor, whom I always write about and whose delegation has visited Trollhättan several times, is definitely not from Italy.
On the other hand, there is an eerie calm with Youngman. Nothing is heard from our friends from the Middle Kingdom. Why ? Do you row back or do you wait for other bidders to come out of cover?
Yes, and Swedish taxpayers have had to put money on the table now. But only for the time being. The Swedish Reich Debt Administration has replaced Saab EIB Kredit with 2.2 billion crowns. As security, the Swedish state has Saab Parts AB and Saab Tools AB. Their value should be considerably higher.
The replacement of the loan is a real step. For now the Luxembourg bank is finally gone, the Swedes can decide faster about the Saab sale. After all, the Reich debt administration prefers a complete sale of Saab and decides in case of doubt for Sweden and for Swedish jobs, I hope.
Oh yes, Zamier Ahmed returns to the plane at the weekend. Destination: Detroit, Michigan. 🙂
