In the past few days we have been living in an on / off story. Saab is sold - but then again not. The NEVS word came again that night and the battle for Saab is said to have been finally decided. The lower bid of the electric car consortium is said to have won for two reasons.
On the one hand, NEVS has the full support of the government in Stockholm and, on the other hand, it has independent sources of funding. Youngman with the 4 billion crown offer would be fully dependent on the NDRC. This in turn should have been contacted by NEVS to put pressure on Youngman. In plain text -Youngman should withdraw the offer. The story comes largely from Dagens Industri.
A press conference is to follow and before any confirmation comes from official sources we should look at the situation with a healthy skepticism. There have been too many sales messages in the last few days.
