Ducati for sale: Who are the potential buyers?March 14, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
As soon as the news about Ducati on sale spread a host of buyers lined up to get their hands on the widely acknowledged bike company.
Audi has been in intense talks and has been putting in efforts to get Ducati on their shores. Audi is offering about 850 million Euros to Investindustrial which is a bit below the put up price of a billion Euros. On the brighter side the 850 million Euros will however remove about 800 million Euros of debt, which does sound like a deal. But it is for Investindustrial to decide.
Audi might be having about a month to seal the deal and make another offer, but till then Ducati is for anyone who can get the cash.
Mercedes, AMG, BMW, Harley-Davidson, Hero Motorcorp, Mahindra, Volkswagen all have been linked to buy Ducati. While some have expressed their interest in the brand openly, some have kept it hidden. Interest from all of them cannot be validated coz in such a big buy out some rumors are supposed to take place.
Let’s see who gets the chance to ride Ducati from the Owner’s seat.
