The buyout isn't approved yet. It also looks like if it does, Wanxing isn't gonna get the remainder of the DOE grant.

U.S. says will not give battery maker A123 rest of grant | Reuters

Also an interesting and hopeful tidbit:

...the Chinese company plans to use the taxpayer-funded equipment in the United States, as originally intended by A123.
So, perhaps not everything will be shipped to China? It all remains to be seen...
