PostNord AB (publ) held an Extraordinary General Meeting on August 25, which decided to approve the merging of two Swedish subsidiaries. PostNord Logistics AB will merge with Posten Meddelande AB and change its name to PostNord Sverige AB.
The change is part of the reorganization PostNord is carrying out in order to create a uniform brand and customer offering. The merger will take place through the absorption of PostNord Logistics AB, which will be integrated in Posten Meddelande AB. This means that PostNord Logistics AB’s assets, liabilities, rights and obligations will be transferred to Posten Meddelande AB, and PostNord Logistics AB will subsequently cease to exist.
PostNord AB (publ), the parent company of the PostNord Group, is 40% owned by the Danish government and 60% by the Swedish government. Voting rights are shared 50/50 between the two governments.
