NEVS is negotiating with two or - depending on the sources - four partners to become a long-term investor or shareholder. However, NEVS failed to achieve its stated goal of concluding negotiations in June.
And even if the topic annoys some readers - I would also like to have successfully put it to the file - there is reason for a short pan to Sweden. Anna Öfverman from Schwedenradio asked Mikael Östlund, NEVS Head of Communication.
“We had the ambition to close the talks in June. But it’s not about a specific date, it’s about closing the negotiations well, ”he said of the delay.
He sees no setback for NEVS in the fact that it takes a little longer and hopes to be able to show results soon. Östlund sees the reasons that the negotiations are lengthy in drawing up a new business plan and securing long-term investments. It is also about new platforms and additional new car models. Nothing that can be decided in a short time.
“This requires serious, hard work with the negotiating parties. As soon as this is complete and we don't have an exact date for it, we will let you know ”
As far as the short interview with the Sweden radio. Currently, even that came over the radio, against NEVS 29 millions of claims (3.15 million €) in Kronofogden pending. Thus, the sum in recent weeks has increased only slightly, still hold other strategic partners of NEVS.
As modest as the news from Stallbacka are the registration numbers that NEVS announces for June in Sweden. 18 new Saab 9-3 found a buyer, many a car dealer sells more a week. The market in Sweden is booming, the regulatory authority reports a big plus of more than 25%. Only NEVS is developing against the market.
If the negotiations drag on longer, the plan to start production in week 33 will no longer apply. Because the suppliers need a certain amount of advance notice as well as balanced accounts and prepayment. But preferably a serious, new major shareholder with an industrial background.
