The money deal is that Spyker gives GM $75 million, GM keeps another $100 million in current Saab liquidity, and The General receives $325 million in preferred shares from the new, Spyker-owned Saab company. That last deal would keep GM in the Saab game, which is perhaps an issue of technology made feasible by Antonov's departure.
The two companies continue to work on the deal in Stockholm. In the meantime, Saab engineers can go on prepping that 9-5 Sport Combi, and if Spyker pulls this off, it will have proved its "Nulla tenaci invia est via" motto and then some.
