The Chicago Tribune carried a piece today speculating about equity investors for United’s exit from bankruptcy. Will they go for just a government loan? Will they get outside financing? Will it come from Lufthansa? Will any new investors demand a new management team? The piece is long on speculation but offers little prediction.
One curious thing is the last line of the article, considering a Lufthansa equity stake in United:
- having another airline as a shareholder would be a first for United, although one that might be a lot less wrenching than other alternatives.
