Porsche announces mandatory offer for Scania

Porsche Automobil Holding SE, Stuttgart, today announced its mandatory offer in Sweden for Scania AB, Södertälje, Sweden. The acceptance period for the offer to the outstanding Scania shareholders for the acquisition of their shares is thus expected to run from 21 January 2009 until 10 February 2009. However, Porsche has no strategic interest in acquiring Scania shares and is therefore offering only the minimum prices required by law, namely 68.52 kronor per A share and 67.10 kronor per B share of the truck manufacturer. The transfer of title to the Scania shares tendered pursuant to the mandatory offer, the so-called settlement, is envisaged to take place on 20 February 2009 and is being fully financed from Porsche’s existing liquidity. The total value of the Scania shares to which the mandatory offer relates amounts to approximately 31.6 billion kronor (approximately EUR 2.8 billion).
