STOCKHOLM -- Brightwell Holdings, a Turkish private-equity firm, said it plans to bid for bankrupt Swedish carmaker Saab Automobile.
"We will make a bid very shortly, there's no question," Zamier Ahmed, a board member of the Istanbul-based group, said.
Brightwell, which invests in energy, transport and technology, wants to buy all of the Trollhaettan-based carmaker and plans to keep production in Sweden, Ahmed said on Wednesday.
His firm is in discussions with the administrators overseeing Saab's bankruptcy as well as with Saab CEO Victor Muller, Ahmed said.
Chinese group Zhejiang Youngman Lotus Automobile may also make a bid for Saab next week.
