The Board of Scandiaconsult has informed the Board of Rambøll: - that, to maximise benefit to both Scandiaconsult and Rambøll, we recommend that Rambøll's Board presents its bid to other shareholders as soon as possible, because clarity and speed are crucial success factors in company mergers and particularly in mergers of knowledge companies. - that, as long as no acceptable bid for all outstanding shares in Scandiaconsult has been presented, the latter will continue its operations as before, independently of Rambøll and irrespective of the fact that Rambøll has become a new owner in Scandiaconsult.
