Combitech Systems acquires Celsius Consultants

Combitech Systems is strengthening its position as a competence leader in
technical real time systems by taking over the personnel and order backlog
of Celsius Consultants. The acquisition means that Combitech Systems takes
over all ongoing commissions and that all consultants (numbering about
ten) in Celsius Consultants will be offered continued employment.

"The acquisition fits in well with our current expansion. The personnel
from Celsius Consultants will reinforce our operations in Linköping,
Gothenburg
and Stockholm. We are also broadening our market through new operations
in Karlskoga and Örebro", states Christer Hoberg, President of Combitech
Systems.

Celsius Consultants is active in consultancy for technical system and
software development. The Mikroteknikcentrum operation that was earlier
organized under Celsius Consultants lies outside the scope of the
purchase.

The transaction is part of Saab's acquisition of Celsius in which
Combitech Systems already has the role of the group's spearhead company in
technical
real time systems and integrated systems. As a result, Combitech Systems
will
be establishing a new office in Örebro, a region which opens up new
potentials
in support and training for companies with advanced technical development.
