Its management buyout style takeover.
Spyker showed a good business case for SAAB and got the loan.
They will have to profit share for the next 5 years with GM as I understand it and , in return GM have given Spyker ALL Saabs IP rights.(intellectual property)

So a clean sheet and 3 new models coming out, SAAB is niot quite dead yet! Thankfully!!!
