Scania welcomes MAN’s decision

Scania welcomes MAN’s decision to withdraw its offer for Scania.

Scania is a strong business with best in class profitability and excellent growth prospects in its own right. The company is focused on developing to its full potential, driving strong and sustainable earnings growth and maximising value for all shareholders.

The Board of Scania has previously said it was open for discussions provided MAN withdrew its hostile offer. Such discussions must however build on industrial and commercial logic.
