Porsche determined to acquire 75% stake in VW

>> Wednesday, January 7, 2009

While Porsche is no rush to increase its holding, the sports carmaker has confirmed that it is still planning to raise its holding to 75%. A Porsche spokesman said the company would stick to its pledge to ensure that enough VW shares are left in the open market to allow investors to trade freely. Last October, shortages of VW stock on the market briefly drove VW shares above €1,000, or more than $1,300. Despite Porsche's new majority holding, the existing VW Law and the resultant power of the state of Lower Saxony and the VW workers council means that its decision-making powers are limited to some degree, analyst Tim Urquhart told The Detroit News.
