Currently one may only make assumptions within that scope, based on the readily available information regarding the business portfolios of the above entities. For instance, in the case of HSW S.A., the offer may refer to a development variant of the UMI loader-excavator. Bergerat Monnoycur Sp. z o.o. may offer its Penelopa model (CAT 432 derivative). One cannot however be completely certain, as to what bids would be placed by the individual bidders.
