Baran worried about Better Place debt
Baran is building Better Place's 51 battery replacement stations in Israel and is anxious about the NIS 54 million it will be owed.
The agreement with Better Place states that Baran will finance 70% of the cost of the first 20 battery replacement stations under a four-year loan to Better Place.
In the financial report, Baran says, "Due to the size of the debt and the events reported in the media about Better Place, including the replacement (or retirement) of senior company executives, and due to the doubts whether it will meet its business targets, Baran's board of directors is closely monitoring the events."
Baran added that Better Place's debt was under review, per regulations. It said, "As the situation changes, the company's management and board of directors will review it and make the necessary decisions."
Baran reported a net profit of NIS 7 million for the third quarter, 4.5% more than for the corresponding quarter of 2011, and a net profit of NIS 26 million in January-September, 260% more than in the corresponding period of last year.
