SCANIA

There is a high probability Volkswagen will buy out the minority shareholders in the Sweden-based truck maker, business daily Dagens Industri said.

The newspaper pointed to bid rumors in Germany as former Daimler executive Andreas Renschler -- whom VW wants to head up its trucks business according to a Reuters source -- has demanded VW take complete control of Scania to accept the job.

VW and MAN SE, which it also controls, own Scania shares corresponding to almost 90 percent of votes but only about 60 percent of capital.
