How much did VW pay for Scania?

In 2014, Volkswagen acquired control of Scania by:

  • Buying the Wallenberg family stake in the Swedish truck company for 27 billion kronor (around $4.37 billion at the exchange rate at the time).
  • Following this, Volkswagen launched a public offer to acquire all remaining shares in Scania from other shareholders. By May 2014, they had reached over 90% ownership.

Therefore, the total cost Volkswagen incurred to gain control of Scania was 27 billion kronor (around $4.37 billion) for the initial stake purchase, followed by additional costs to acquire remaining shares, although the exact amount for these is not publicly available.
