4.4.2006: Meldung: Claes Dahlbäck will not participate in Gambro"s handling of take over bid
Claes Dahlbäck said:
- I am Chairman of the Board in Gambro and at the same time Chairman of EQT"s Investment Committee. This means that there is a conflict of interest. Furthermore, I can not be regarded as having an independent position towards Investor AB.
I realized this problem already in January when I first understood that this situation could occur. My conclusion that I have conformed to since I initially came into contact with the issue, is that I have to announce conflict of interest in this matter within Gambro and EQT and towards Investor AB, but fulfil other obligations as usual.
The consequences for Mr Dahlbäck of this decision are:
* Does not participate in the Board of Gambro"s handling of a bid from EQT and Investor AB
* Does not participate in EQT"s and Investor AB"s handling of a bid to Gambro"s shareholders and will not have any economical advantages within EQT in a possible deal
* Does not participate in ongoing contacts with these parties regarding the bid or any public discussion that can affect the handling of the issue
