Fisker bankruptcy bidding heats up quickly

Jan 13, 2014 by Randall Chase

A group led by Hong Kong billionaire Richard Li is offering $55 million at auction for Fisker Automotive, just days after a judge rejected a private sale of the failed electric-vehicle manufacturer.

Hybrid Technology's conditional offer includes $30 million cash and $25 million in credit for what it's owed as Fisker's senior secured lender. Hybrid also says at least $5.5 million will go to Fisker's unsecured creditors.

Hybrid submitted the offer Sunday, after a judge on Friday capped its proposed $75 million credit bid at $25 million and ordered a competitive auction instead of a private sale to Hybrid.

While making the offer, Hybrid also signaled that it plans to challenge the 's ruling, which came after Chinese auto parts conglomerate Wanxiang Group Corp. offered $35.7 million in cash.
