The fund declared a voting stake in Volvo of 10.5 percent late last year but has since been fortifying its position.

SAAB

The defence group is eyeing taking over the development of a new generation of Swedish submarines following a rift over the project between the government and Germany’s ThyssenKrupp , the owner of the Kockums shipyard in southern Sweden where the submarines are being developed.

Saab has been given funds by Swedish authorities to carry out a study of the feasibility of adopting the project and CEO Hakan Buskhe told Swedish daily Svenska Dagbladet the company was clearly interested though nothing had yet been decided.

ELISA

Finland’s biggest mobile phone carrier is constantly looking for acquisition possibilities outside its home country, although it looks unlikely that suitable targets will be found, chief executive Veli-Matti Mattila said in an interview.

“We have been involved in quite a few international processes (over the years) and have always left as prices went too high,” Mattila was quoted as saying by Talouselama magazine.

“Yes we are looking, but it is essential to understand that primarily we seek growth through new services,” he said.
