Scania: Scania contests the European Commission's view, but still makes provision

As previously communicated, Scania, along with a number of other truck
manufacturers has been investigated by the European Commission
concerning inappropriate exchange of information during the period
1997-2011.

In light of the European Commission's Statement of Objections and
recent developments in the investigation, Scania is now, in
accordance with relevant accounting principles and a prudent
approach, making a provision in order to cover possible fines.

Scania has fully cooperated with the European Commission during the
investigation. However, Scania contests the Commission's view that
the company has entered into a pan-European agreement with other
manufacturers with regard to pricing.

Also, the company has not delayed the introduction of new engines
compliant with EU-legislation for exhaust emissions.

The company will fully exercise its rights of defence in the ongoing
investigation.

The provision of SEK 3.8 billion will have an impact on operating
income in the second quarter of 2016. Scania will publish its Interim
Report for the period January-June 2016 on 28 July 2016.

For further information, please contact Hans-Åke Danielsson, Press
Manager, tel. +46 8 553 856 62.
