While Ford is getting Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to take Land Rover and Jaguar off of its hands, analysts are predicting how much Ford will take home at the end of the day. It is not clear yet whether both brands will be sold as a package deal but an industry source has told Automotive News that Ford is favoring a package solution though it won”t mind selling the two brands separately.
Morgan Stanley has said that the deal could rake in anywhere from $4 billion to $7 billion into Ford’s bank account. Citigroup, on the other hand, believes that Ford could fetch $8 billion from the deal.
Merrill Lynch analysts have previously said that Ford could possibly raise over $9 billion by selling its remaining luxury car brands.
Last week a German newspaper, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, reported that Cerberus, who recently bought Chrysler, is showing interest in purchasing Jaguar and Ford.
