The cash will be awarded to Saab in exchange for a share subscription in the capital of Saab’s parent company Swedish Automobile in the order of 2,386,635 ordinary shares.
The shares will be offered at a price of $4.19, which equates to a total investment by North Street Capital of $10 million.
Swedish Automobile said in a statement that it had no choice but to accept the offer due to doubts that more bridge funding from its Chinese partners Youngman and Pang Da, of which a partial payment was received a week ago, could be received by the October 22 deadline.
The shares to be issued will be paid in full by October 21.
In addition to the share subscription, North Street Capital will also arrange a $60 million loan to Saab in exchange for collateral in some of the automaker’s assets as well as the collateral promised to the Swedish National Debt Office. The loan and transfer of cash is expected to be finalized by mid-next week.
