Posted on 07. Jan, 2010 by in 2010-2019

A Saab Automobile update has been sent. Take a look below, no real news here, but it’s important to have this down for the record.

Interesting, a new name in the Swedish Government, Hans Linblad, perhaps we should contact him too in addition to the others. I could not find his name on the Swedish Government’s website however.

Below is a recap sent to Saab Employees in Sweden, loosely translated.

    Mark,

    I added it to the Swedish Government post earlier.

    Do you have a head shot of him too for completeness? I hope we don’t need to e-mail these folks again and the results of these bids are positive, but it better be safe than sorry.
