The Tax Agency has, in a decision dated November 15, 2006, concerning reconsideration of income tax for 2003, rejected Klövern's request for deduction for the loss of approximately SEK 5 000 million. The request for deduction is related to the divestment of the former subsidiary Adcore Stockhom AB. Klövern is going to appeal against the decision to the County Administrative Court.
The Tax Agency has, the same day as above, made decisions on reconsideration of income tax for 2002 and 2003, for the former IT business carried on under the name Adcore AB. These decisions mean that the Tax Agency is increasing Klövern's tax assessment by SEK 20 million net, and that tax surcharges are being imposed on Klövern totalling SEK 17 million. Klövern will appeal against the decisions as such and against the imposition of tax surcharges to the County Administrative Court. The company will be granted a respite with payment of the tax surcharge until legal proceedings on the case have been concluded. The tax supplement is therefore for the time being only to be regarded as a contingent liability.
