As reported here, GM’s and Volkswagen’s Chinese partner SAIC will halt the trading of its shares on Monday in anticipation of a major plan. The plan doesn’t appear to be fully hatched: According to People’s Daily, “SAIC will make an announcement on the plan in five trading days.”

But what’s that secret plan? Speculations by our commenters range from buying more of GM  to buying Saab. One of the Best & Brightest appears to be close to the truth – as far as we can fathom at this point.

Tstag said: “SAIC’s parent company owns other auto companies such as Yeujin motors. It may be that they just plan to group everything together in one group.”

Close. Indeed, Beijing’s Global Times (owned by People’s Daily) today floats the rumor that “SAIC Group is mulling an asset restructure among its subsidiaries and some service-oriented assets which are still unlisted would be injected into SAIC while the group’s three independent auto parts companies would go to Huayu Automotive Systems Co Ltd (Huayu Auto).”

The give-away: Trading in Huayu Auto is also suspended.

As things stand now, nothing earthshaking is bound to happen. However, they will keep the suspense up until the end of the coming week.
