DENMARK, Randers. Danish Crown AmbA and Tican a.m.b.a. have received the award in the arbitration case to decide whether Tican was entitled to compensation of DKK 20 mill. following the cancelled merger between Danish Crown and Tican. The arbitration tribunal found that Tican was not entitled to compensation.
“It has been one of those cases which neither party really wanted to have to go through. On the other hand, it has been crucial for both parties to defend the interests of their respective owners, and therefore it was agreed early on in the merger negotiations that any disagreements should be decided by an arbitration tribunal”, says Søren Overgaard, Chairman of the Board of Tican.
Danish Crown AmbA and Tican a.m.b.a. both consider the case to be finally concluded, and therefore neither party is going to comment further on the award.
