"Everything is going well, we had other priorities in the last few weeks, especially not satisfied with the performance of the vehicle and we had to solve all of this."

"We had to focus entirely on the development of the team and we did not focus too much on the deal."

"It's a time-consuming process to finalize the contract, and both parties thought it would be more appropriate to do it later."

"We'll let you know when the deal takes place."
