    Apparently the Qatar investment group will

     invest in Porsche. The WSJ reports today that an agreement has been reached and will be finalized in a couple of weeks. Here is a portion of the article;

    The nature of the Qatari fund's potential investment in Porsche couldn't be determined, partly because the sport car maker is expected to prepare a capital increase of as much as 5 billion euro. But analysts said they believe the fund could take a direct stake in Porsche of around 20%

    If true, I wonder how much input the investment group will have on day to day operations?Smiley

    Others here were already wondering the same thing yesterday, Nick Smiley:

    Yes fritz, that might also be true. I was thinking about the Abu-Dhabi / Daimler deal and the dependency we could get into.

    During one of the earlier oil crises (1972?) Kuwait invested a lot of its spare pocket money in Daimler-Benz, as D-B was in a similar situation to today's.
    Do you remember hearing any stories of the "dependency" causing Daimler any problems?  Smiley

    Not at all, I didn't even know!

    Just googled it.
    KIA (Kuwait Investment Authority) bought into DB in 1974 and still holds 6.9% of the stock, second only to Abu Dhabi, which bought 9.1% in March 2009.

    I've read that Herr Wulf the State Prime Minister is welcoming the Qatar participation. He said that his government had a positive view of arab investors judging from other participations in companies based there.

    Yes, sure. Qatar could be expected not to interfere in the operation of the company. Smiley

    Unlike Wulff and his state's governement. Smiley
