The ASG Dispute Decided

Report this content

The ASG dispute decided In 1999 Regular Capital Inc ("Regular") - which is wholly owned by the Swedish Post Office - tried to prevent Custos to sell its shares in ASG to the Deutsche Post subsidiary Danzas Sweden AB, ("Danzas"). Regular argued that there was a Shareholders Agreement between the parties. After this question had been tried by the District Court as well as the Appellate Court, both of which dismissed Regulars requests, Custos finalised the transfer of the shares in ASG to Danzas. Subsequently Regular initiated arbitration against Custos. The Arbitral Tribunal rendered an award in August 2000 and declared that Regular's request should be dismissed. The Tribunal concluded that there was no agreement between Regular and Custos, which Custos - in the opinion of Regular - could have violated. Regular appealed the Arbitration Award to the Svea Court of Appeal. The Svea Court of Appeal has today decided against Regular. The judgement rendered today is final and thus the Arbitration Award stands.
