But I think you cant just not take into account that this is a division of a much larger entity. Tata motors can draw on experience and management from a much larger company. Quite rightly it is operated as a separate company to keep its focus on automotive operations.

JB never said anything about experience; just its market cap and cash liquidty.

It has been reported in a New Zealand media outlet, Ford has (reportedly) sold Jaguar and Land Rover. The article goes on to say the deal was done a few days ago but won't be officially annouced until early next year. The buyer, as expected and reported recently: Tata

Ford has reportedly sold British marques Jaguar and Land Rover. The deal was done a few days ago but won't be announced until February. The likely buyer is Tata, the giant automotive company in India. Tata wants to become a major global name and is looking for a European vehicle development centre. Ford earlier sold the other famous British nameplate, Aston Martin, to British-Kuwait interests. Another thing: Ford now apparently wants to hang on to Volvo.

Car bosses fear Indian bids

SENIOR managers at Jaguar and Land Rover have expressed disquiet at the emergence of two Indian bidders for their companies. In a note sent in September to management at Ford, the American car company that is selling the British marques, they said the "strategic" bidders (Tata and Mahindra from India) "ranked at the bottom of performance as assessed by Jaguar and Land Rover management".

A senior Ford source yesterday rejected suggestions there were differences of opinion, saying "you could not get a paper" between Ford and the local management.

Tata is regarded as favourite to win the auction, although no decision has yet been taken. It faces competition from Mahindra and One Equity, an American private-equity group.

Meanwhile, Jaguar's American dealers have thrown their weight behind the One Equity bid. Ken Gorin, leader of the Jaguar dealers' council, said the other bidders presented "a unique image problem".

Thank goodness someone is looking out for Jaguar. Lord knows money hungry Ford isn't.

NDTV Correspondent

Friday, November 30, 2007 (New Delhi):

It is finally looking like the last lap of the long race for two luxury marquees Jaguar and Land Rover, and even though the Tata Motors is frontrunner, the final outcome could go either way.

It is expected that Ford's parent board will meet senior executives from Ford of Europe, including the Premier Automobile Group management in the first week of December to decide on the deal.

For the final announcement, the meeting will focus on the final bids, the stand taken by the unions and the UK government's position.

The outcome of the meeting will be discussed with the UK government and then the winner will be announced from December 18 to 26.

Most agree that it is likely that the name will indeed be Tata Motors. "In line with Tata's global footprint strategy, the chances of winning for India's auto major seem high," said Subramanyam Pisupati, Ventura Securities.

While Tata looks to be the favourite, Anand Mahindra can take heart that his past relationship with Ford means some board members are still leaning towards M&M. The same holds true for One Equity partners as Jac Nasser was Ford's boss a few years ago.

Yeah because One Equity is the guaranteed best choice?

Apart from two person (Jacques Nasser and Wolfgang Reitzle), what do you have to offer? They'll probably shut down factories, lift and shift to the USA. And i don't see them having the financial resources to bankroll JLR in it's current state..

The name a 'private equity' says it all. They're in it to make a quick buck by turning it around with job cuts and factory streamlining. And then 5 years down the line they'll sell them on again..
