Opel "weeks away" from collapse

14 posts in this topic

Opel urgently needs money to prevent a cash crisis that could result in the total failure of its operations. The time frame is weeks. The cash-starved General Motors brand has appealed to governments in European nations where it has operations to supply emergency funding to bridge a €3.3 billion liquidity shortage. German Economy Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg said today he will not be pressured into making a quick decision on granting state aid to struggling Opel.

You're welcome.

This type of morbid announcement is getting more commonplace.

The various Governments and Corporations are into some heavy-duty brinkmanship-playing.

Yea - It is a big lie that GME's revenue was down 40% and production was down 50% in the last quarter.

Must be a big lie that GME lost a cool $1 billion dollars.

German Economy Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg

Now there's a proper name for a Minister. Aristocratic, it imposes respect and reverence! :P
