Åke Dovärn says: "We find ourselves in a situation where we cannot anticipate an upturn in the market for the corporation's products and services within the foreseeable future. We have therefore decided to review the corporation's business concept from a impartial viewpoint. I am convinced that new approaches will be needed to drive this process. I have therefore requested my removal from the office of Chairman but remain as a member of the board in order to contribute the factual knowledge that I possess about Enea and the market." The board decided further to initiate a program aimed at bringing the corporation to break-even as fast as possible. This program will include taking an unbiased overview of the corporation's business concept, the investigation of potential structural transactions and to overlook overall effiency further. The newly appointed Chairman Jan Rynning says: "Enea has got very strong competences and a strong brand. In the short term perspective we will be concentrating on getting the corporation's businesses back to break-even while at the same time securing Enea's core competence. We are convinced that those players who are the fastest to turn around the trend from loss to profit will have the best opportunities for making sound structural transactions. Enea has the potential to be one of these."
