Victor Muller has always a plan B

Saab's current CEO, Chairman and major owner Victor Muller writes in a text message to Dagens Industri that "there is always a plan B".

Earlier today we could read that the court appointed administrator for the Saab reconstruction currently is in Washington with Sweden's ambassador to the USA meeting representatives from General Motors. The aim to convince GM to keep supplying Saab with technology should Saab become fully Chinese owned.

And the negotiations are still ongoing according to Victor Muller's text messages to DI. When asked what the likelihood is that the deal will be finalized in time to save Saab, Muller wrote the following:

"That's impossible to say. This is a issue between GM and the Chinese."

And if the deal falls through, Muller wrote that there is always a plan B.

On Friday Norwegian and Swedish TV viewers can see Victor Muller answering even more question, albeit probably questions about how his life has been the past year or two.

On Friday both Swedish TV SVT1 (at 21:00 CET) and Norwegian TV NRK1 (streaming at 21:25 CET) will broadcast the entertainment talkshow Skavlan, where the Norwegian TV host Fredrik Skavlan will have Victor Muller as guest.

So my Norwegian and Swedish readers should absolutely check out SVT1 or NRK1 on Friday. And if you are not in Sweden or Norway, you can try to access the show by following the above link to NRK1, but it will probably only be available for Norwegian and Swedish Internet users.
