Yesterday's information from the Government proposing restrictions in the right to deduct capital losses on shares in subsidiaries effective today is estimated to reduce expected positive tax effects in the year 2002 for Eniro from approx 160 MSEK originally to approx 60 MSEK in connection with the possible acquisition of SOL.
