With its decision of 14 February 2005 the Austrian Supreme Court confirmed the decision of the anti-trust authority of 28 October 2004 which restrained Lenzing from acquiring Tencel.

While the case was pending with the Austrian Supreme Court, Lenzing already reached an agreement with the anti-trust authorities on the conditions and limitations that will address the concerns.

A new application concerning the Tencel acquisition incorporating the quite extensive modifications will be filed in the next few days. Since agreement has been reached on the terms, a swift approval of the merger is expected,
