Securitas terminate agreement regarding take over of Pengar i Sverige AB

Wednesday, June 02, 2004

In February 2004, Securitas Värde AB signed an agreement to take over the majority of the commercial part of Swedish National Bank cash services, Pengar i Sverige AB. The take over was conditional for the Swedish Competition Authority's approval. The Swedish Competition Authority has reviewed the case for three months and has now demanded an extended trial period for up to three months. The prolonged trial period implies further uncertainty for the employees concerned and entails increased risks in the production. Consequently Securitas has decided, in accordance with the agreed terms and conditions, to terminate the agreement regarding the take over of Pengar i Sverige AB.
