In conjunction with this, the Board of Directors of ÅF has, with the support of the power invested in it by the 2006 Annual General Meeting of the company's shareholders, reached a decision to make a new directed share issue of 90,951 class B shares to the owners of Hansen & Henneberg. This will lead to a dilution corresponding to approximately 0.6 percent of the company's share capital and approximately 0.4 percent of the votes.
As a result of the recent acquisition, ÅF now owns 80 percent of the shares in Hansen & Henneberg.
