Saab has told employees that there is a risk it may have to delay paying their wages in August, as funding raised by the automaker from investors has not yet been released.
In a written statement on Tuesday, the carmaker and its Dutch parent company Swedish Automobile NV said the company was taking ''all necessary actions'' to try and collect the funds as well as seeking to raise additional short-term funding, but added that it could offer no assurances that existing or additional funding could be collected.
Saab was forced to halt production in late March amid a cash crunch, and the automaker's Trollhattan factory in Sweden has been quiet since early June. Saab has said it is trying to restart manufacturing in a few weeks.
Swedish Automobile, sold 4 million new shares to GEM Global Yield Fund Ltd. last week in an effort to raise further cash.
Last Wednesday, Sweden's Debt Enforcement Agency started collection proceedings against Saab after it failed to meet a Tuesday deadline to pay two suppliers. The automaker was supposed to pay two companies a combined 4 million kronor ($633,000) to avert the proceedings.
According to the authoriities, more than 100 debt claims have been filed against Saab with the collection agency, with some companies filing more than one claim, and eight proceeding to ask for the regulator's involvement, an agency spokeswoman said last month.
The collection process usually takes from one to three months, and can be halted in the event Saab pays the debts involved, a debt- agency spokesman said last week.
At the end of the procedure, the Swedish Tax Authority can request that Saab be put into bankruptcy in the absence of payments.
