AFM reverses trading in Spyker

The financial services watchdog AFM is to reverse Tuesday’s trading in luxury car maker Spyker because it was based on misleading information.

Yesterday’s AD newspaper reported that two of Spyker’s creditors had asked the courts to declare the company bankrupt because of unpaid bills. The claims were later proved to be wrong, but Spyker’s share price fell 12%.
An AFM spokesman told news agency ANP that it is interested in the origins of the ‘misleading report’.
