Judicial process concerning Cargotec completed in the US, opponent’s Petition for Review denied

The judicial process concerning Cargotec has been completed in the US. On 2 October 2020, the Supreme Court of Texas denied Cargotec’s opponent’s Petition for Review.

The claim was based on Cargotec allegedly having breached confidentiality obligations related to the negotiations. Cargotec received in October 2016 a USD 13 million verdict in a local jury trial in Hempstead, USA. The verdict was related to business acquisition negotiations Cargotec USA had in 2010 and 2011. The negotiations were closed without results. In December 2018, Cargotec won its appeal to dispute the verdict of damages. The opponent appealed to the Supreme Court of Texas.

The decision has no impact on Cargotec’s financials.
