Porsche-VW merger could take on new investors
Currently, Porsche maintains 51% of VW's voting rights, with Lower Saxony coming in at 20% and miscellaneous investors comprising the final 29%. According to the state's spokesperson, "At the end of the day it could look like this: Porsche owns 50%, Lower Saxony 20% and free float investors 30%." Obviously, Lower Saxony's stake would remain the same – exactly as the local government leaders prefer. As previously reported, talks between the two automakers stalled over the weekend, and no new schedule has been set for the negotiations to continue.
