Audi to announce Ducati acquisition next week?

According to at least one unnamed source, Audi’s purchase of Ducati is as good as done. Reuters reports that Audi has taken a good hard look at Ducati’s books and found “no major stumbling blocks.”

Another source says Ducati’s largest shareholder, Investindustrial, has agreed to discuss the cyclemaker’s sale to no one but Audi.
