Investor AB welcomes the withdrawal of the bid for Scania

Investor AB welcomes today’s announcement by MAN that its bid for Scania will be withdrawn. Investor rejected the offer as it neither provided the foundation for identifying the right structure of a combination nor reflected the value or potential of Scania.

Investor will continue to support Scania’s successful development as a stand-alone company, but we will naturally evaluate possible industrial partnerships and combinations in order to develop Scania further. Amicable discussions with MAN and VW are a priority. The lapse of the bid provides an opportunity to do so without time pressure.
