Dutch Spyker announced that they have paid General Motors $24,000,000 and thus completed the acquisition of Saab, without the company incurring additional debt.

Concerns about Spyker would pay the remaining $ 24,000,000 (154,600,000 million) for the purchase of Saab subsided after the little automaker avoided incurring more debt by using internal funding.

In a statement from the company, they said Spyker they paid without an external debt increased. The company also released an issue of new shares.
