We posted yesterday about Spyker finally getting their hands on Saab, but not many details were available at the time. Now though, we can bring you some of the details on the deal.
Genii Capital has pulled out of the running for Saab, just a couple of weeks after placing their original bid. This leaves Spyker as the only remaining bidder.
Spyker has been refusing to say what investor is behind their renewed Saab deal. Now, rumours suggest that it is Dutch billionaire Marcel Boekhoorn.
After General Motors has announced that it was set to kill the Saab brand, it seems that the last bidder who was left in the game, Spyker Cars, has made the American giant a new offer to try to secure Saab’s future. Spyker CEO Victor R. Muller said today that a new offer has been submitted to GM with the 11 points that prevented Spyker for taking Saab last time being reconsidered. They are very confident that they have removed any obstacle that stood in the way of the transaction the last time therefore hoping no problems will arouse this time.
