The other top bidder for Daewoo is an Iranian appliance OEM, Entekhab Industrial Group.

The BBC is reporting the deal will cold be worth $440 million. Daewoo's disposition has been unclear for a decade, ever since the company's massive debt load forced the South Korean government to take it over in 2000 and put it on a debt-repayment plan. Ownership is now primarily in the hands of its creditors.
