In December 2006, Kalmar agreed to acquire the Italian company CVS Ferrari. The German competition authorities are demanding remedy actions which Kalmar believes are disproportionate to the impact the contemplated transaction would have on the competitive environment. Kalmar and CVS Ferrari are cooperating in order to find a satisfactory solution in order to finalise the acquisition. However, for the time being, both Kalmar and CVS Ferrari continue to be independent competitors pursuing their own business.
