Yesterday evening, Victor Jensen from Sverigesradio P4 Väst put a telephone interview with NEVS CEO Bergman online. To make it short: NEVS needs more time - again ...
The reason for the delay should be the unexplained trademark rights, Bergman said. According to information from Sverigesradio and blog, Mahindra is in negotiations with Saab AB, which does not comment.
Originally, at the end of December, Mahindra's Board of Directors was due to seal entry. Now, more than a month later, nothing has happened in this regard. Bergman, who is traveling somewhere in Asia, sounds little optimistic in the interview. The process takes more time, a date for a possible entry is no longer mentioned, possibly NEVS must ask the court for extension. Phase 2 of the procedure is already running on the 2. March off.
Specifically, 3 opens up possibilities:
- There is an agreement until March 2, which is currently unlikely.
- The administrator cancels the procedure early and declares the reconstruction to have failed.
- The court approved another three months, which would be possible under Swedish law.
However, the mood among suppliers is now tense, also because NEVS leaves the partners in the dark about the situation. Another extension requires the approval of most of the capital. The full-length interview is available to our Swedish readers P4 Väst ...
Question to the readers: who still seriously believes in a positive outcome of the negotiations by NEVS? At the end of the text you can vote, I'm curious!
What works - as positive news at the end - is the production of Saab spare parts. Union circles report a good employment situation for the 135 workers in the plant. They don't build new vehicles, but they do produce spare parts and body parts for the Orio AB for 1 million Saabs that are on the road. The production facilities are also being maintained for a new start. On this winter day it appears farther away than ever.
Will NEVS come to a positive conclusion?
- No never! (64% 371 Votes)
