GM Statement Regarding Stephen Taylor and Peter Torngren Appointments at Saab

2010-01-12

GM today confirmed that Stephen Taylor and Peter Torngren have been officially appointed by the appropriate authority in Sweden as wind-down supervisors of Saab and in this role they will jointly replace the CEO and board immediately. They will meet with management, unions and other stakeholders, and will start working on a plan for an orderly wind down.

As stated previously, the wind-down process is expected to take several months, and will ensure that employees, dealers and suppliers are adequately protected. Also as stated previously, Saab customers can be assured that warranties will continue to be honored and that service and spare parts will continue to be available.

GM today also reaffirmed that it is continuing to evaluate the several purchase proposals it has received for Saab, an evaluation not affected by today’s official appointment.

GM Selecting AlixPartners To Wind Down (Eliminate) Saab

Posted on 08. Jan, 2010 by .

This is completely unacceptable, and mixed messages with bids coming in and production resuming on Monday and now this from GM.

Now GM is having someone else do their work to “wind down” Saab. If you read between the lines, this is a message to the Swedish Government who still don’t get it. They need to give these bids an EIB loan guarantee. If they don’t presumably, none of the bids will be accepted!

To learn more about AlixPartners and express your opinion about their partnership with GM to “wind down Saab”, check out their website and send them an e-mail by visiting their website here.

Here’s their press release below.

GM Statement Regarding Saab

2010-01-08

GM today confirmed it has selected AlixPartners to supervise the orderly wind down of Saab, and has requested approval of the selection by the appropriate authority in Sweden. The use of a wind down supervisor is a commonly-used process in Sweden and works in the interest of the shareholder.

The wind down process is expected to take several months, and will ensure that employees, dealers and suppliers are adequately protected. As stated previously, Saab customers can be assured that warranties will continue to be honored and that service and spare parts will continue to be available.

GM also confirmed that it has received several proposals for Saab and is continuing to evaluate these proposals. This evaluation is not affected by the appointment of AlixPartners.

Exactly a week ago, GM released a statement regarding Saab negotiations. Today, they have posted a new statement indicating that there have been inquiries made to them expressing interest in Saab’s assets both in part and in full.

Here is their updated statement:

December 8th, 2009

As we said last week, we have and continue to receive expressions of interest in Saab since negotiations concluded with Koenigsegg Group AB. These latest inquiries range from interest in part of Saab’s assets to interest in all of Saab’s assets. Since these discussions are confidential and ongoing, we will have no further comment unless or until a decision is reached and the parties are ready to announce.
