Spyker said to be favorite

TROLLHÄTTAN – Updated 18:09 – Spyker Cars pulls up in pole position when General Motors is now close to deciding for whom to negotiate with the end to buy Saab Automobile, said a source told news agency TT.

According to the stakeholders that GM will be under way to choose an operator who has experience in automobile manufacturing, but on a smaller scale. It should not be a new name, but a company that has omskrivits for their interest.
The data suggest that the Spyker Cars is GM’s favorite.

The company reported discussing buying Saab in its entirety. The plans are to pursue a full-scale car production in both design and development and manufacturing in Sweden.

After GM’s board last week gave Saab a deadline to the end to find a potential buyer walked Spyker Cars spokesperson out and confirmed that it held talks with GM.

The Dutch company has several similarities with the Koenigsegg Group, who surprisingly dropped out of the store for just over two weeks ago.
Like the Koenigsegg is a small loss of weight sports car manufacturer. Spyker produces around 50 super-luxury sports cars per year. Over the past five years, the listed company has gone back every year. Last year, landed the loss of 23.8 million euros, equivalent to 250 million.

Spyker is behind the Russian financier Vladimir Antonov – which is a major shareholder in a Russian and a Lithuanian bank. There are also Arab interests through Mubadala, an investment company from Abu Dhabi, which saved the company away for bankruptcy two years ago.
Spyker Cars has today 135 employees at its facility in Zeewolde in the Netherlands. But in November the company announced that production at the end of the year should be transferred to the subcontractor CPP in Coventry in the UK cost-cutting.

From Spyker Cars is one with scant comment. Mike Stainton, the public relations company PFPR Communications, which handles media relations, neither confirm nor deny if Spyker entered deeper into negotiations with GM.

– I can not give any information about how the negotiations go, “he says.

But he insists that Spyker is still interested in buying the Saab Automobile.

– The statement from last week in which Spyker Cars confirmed to be agreed with the owner Convers Group has expressed interest in Saab, has not changed, “says Mike Stainton.
