13 februari 1993 - BREEDER IN GERMAN HANDS

Papendrecht - There is an agreement on the takeover of Fokker by the German DASA. The Germans get 51 percent of the shares owned, creating a majority stake. According to Minister Andriessen of Economic Affairs, there were too few alternatives. The staff is also behind the takeover. Due to a deteriorating aircraft market, things are going a lot worse for the company. In recent weeks, the government has blocked a deferment of payment with state aid.

Drie jaar later gaat Fokker alsnog failliet.
