MOSCOW — The two partners in the drawn-out takeover of European car maker Opel will sign a deal with its mother company General Motors within days, a senior member of one of the firms said on Thursday.
Canadian car parts maker Magna and the Russian bank Sberbank will sign the deal to jointly take over Opel "in the coming days," Magna's co-president Siegfried Wolf said, quoted by the Interfax news agency.
The contracts were being checked and all questions regarding the transferral of intellectual property assets had been resolved, he said.
"I think it's very good for Russia industry," he was quoted as saying.
Russian car maker GAZ was a "recognised potential partner" that may be chosen to produce Opel cars after the takeover, he said.
