Victor Muller is in Sweden at the invitation of the administrators. Lotus-Youngman, actually already considered retired, submitted yesterday a new offer. It should be the highest offer for the Group and a liquidity certificate was included. The electric car consortium NEVS continues to be a favorite with the press, even though the offer is much lower.
The NEVS financing concept is also said to have weak points, sources that are close. Nothing is heard from Mahindra and the Indian company could possibly experience a “Deja Vu”. In the finals for Land Rover / Jaguar, local rivals Tata overtook them at the finish line. Are you losing to NEVS or Youngman now? The situation is clearer than yesterday.
Nevertheless, helplessness is in the air. Even friends from Sweden have difficulties with forecasts. Are the administrators who have done a clean job so far depending on the amount of the bid? Or according to political guidelines? Or wins the better concept that will lead Saab into a secure future.
The day promises to be exciting if there are no further delays. Maybe we can finally put the word “patience” to the file.
