Industri Kapital extends acceptance period for Perstorp offer until July 7, 2000 The offer to Perstorp's shareholders and holders of convertible debentures will be extended from June 28, 2000, up to and including Friday July 7, 2000. The extension is due to the fact that the expiry date of the EU Commission's first phase investigation is now set at June 30, 2000. The reason for this is that the EU Commission wants to evaluate the commitments that Industri Kapital and Perstorp Intressenter AB have offered in order to facilitate a clearance of the acquisition.
