Saab spokeswoman Gunilla Gustavs told Reuters that an official announced should be issued anytime this week, with the Swedish court likely to approve creditor support and give the green light to the deal on Wednesday.
"I think that during this week, chances are good. It could be any time now," Gunilla Gustavs was quoted as saying. "We are well above that, which is good. That makes Wednesday more or less a formality."
As said, Koenigsegg is now seen as the favorite to win the battle and take over the Swedish unit. Furthermore, the company's co-owner revealed that he has the ability to save Saab and bring it back to profitability in the next years.
"We think it is possible and we have several good solutions to bring with us into Saab," Eker said according to a report by AFP. "But I don't want to comment on the amount of money and who is involved," he said. "I want to make one thing clear. We are not buying Saab just to chop it up. That's not what we do."
General Motors on the other hand is still keeping things secret. "We're not making any comment at this time. We continue to work towards a resolution for the sale of Saab," said GM Europe spokesman Chris Preuss.
