Αυτό που ανακοινώθηκε την Παρασκευή 28 Οκτωβρίου, την Δευτέρα επισημοποιήθηκε με όλες τις λεπτομέρειες. H Saab ανακοίνωσε ότι η Pang Da και η Youngman την αγόρασαν για μόλις 100 εκτ. ευρώ και ότι θα προσφέρουν και ένα δάνειο ύψους 50 εκατ. ευρώ για τις άμεσες ανάγκες της. Επίσης οι δύο κινέζικες εταιρίες δεσμεύτηκαν να δώσουν επιπλέον 600 εκατ. ευρώ για την μακροπρόθεσμη χρηματοδότηση της Κινέζικης πλέον εταιρίας. Όλα αυτά βέβαια θα γίνουν αν η Κινεζική κυβέρνηση δώσει τελικά το πράσινο φως για την εξαγορά αυτή.

Επίσης το δικαστήριο αποφάσισε σήμερα να συνεχιστεί η εθελοντική αναδιάρθρωση της Saab. Σύμφωνα με το σχέδιο αναδιάρθρωσης, τα μελλοντικά αυτοκίνητα της Saab θα συνεχίζουν να κατασκευάζονται σε Σουηδία και Μεξικό, ενώ στο μέλλον δεν αποκλείεται να κατασκευάζονται μερικά αυτοκίνητα και στην Κίνα. Η Saab ευελπιστεί ότι το 2012 θα πουλήσει 55.000 αυτοκίνητα (βασίζεται κυρίως στα 9-4X και 9-5) με απώτερο στόχο να πουλά 205.000 αυτοκίνητα στο μέλλον, αρκετά αισιόδοξος στόχος αν αναλογιστεί κανείς ότι το 2010 η Saab πούλησε μόλις 32.000 αυτοκίνητα.

Το σχέδιο επίσης δηλώνει ότι τα έτη 2012 και 2013 θα είναι έτη μετάβασης με πλήρη κερδοφορία να επέρχεται το 2014. Περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες μπορείς να βρεις στο δελτίο τύπου που ακολουθεί αλλά και στα επίσημα pdf εδώ και εδώ.

  • Confirmation of the long-term strategy of repositioning Saab as a distinctive, near premium brand supported by a renewed and broadened product portfolio, a more flexible cost structure with global production footprint, cross-carline modular technology architecture generating synergies, provision of external engineering services and expanded operations to take advantage of growth opportunities available in China and provided by strong Chinese owners.
  • Sales targets for 2012 of 35-55,000 cars and 2013 of 75-85,000 cars based on realistic ramp up in line with sales development since last restart.
