Decision made: Ahlsell is sold

As we have reported on several occasions, Quimper AB has made a takeover bid to the Ahlsell shareholders, which has been accepted. Quimper now holds approximately 92.4% of the total number of shares and requests an extraordinary general meeting on March 25 where amongst other things a new board should be appointed. (As CVC Funds is indirectly involved in Quimper, it is expected that a representative of CVC will be represented on the board).

It was also decided to request a de-listing and the compulsory redemption of the outstanding shares.
