Porsche now owns 42.6% of Volkswagen
"The goal remains, as long as the financial conditions are right, to increase [the stake] to 75 percent in 2009 and clear the way for a controlling stake," Porsche said in a press release.
After last week's big meeting between the two companies and, more significantly, since Porsche's stated goal is to own 50% of VW by the end of November, this new step is really no surprise.
