Delphi advisor to VR Group in the acquisition of MTR Express

Delphi has assisted VR Group in connection with the acquisition of MTR Express (Sweden) AB (“MTRX”).

VR Group is a Finnish railway company and a major operator in the Finnish public transport market.

When the acquisition is completed, MTRX will be part of VR Group’s long-distance traffic operations.

The transaction requires approval from the Swedish Competition Authority, which is expected by the end of May.

Delphi’s team consisted of Michael Juhlin, Anna Bjurell, Fredrik Lindén, Johan Hübner, Fredrik Nykvist, Felix Makarowski, Ida Nordmark, Lea Elmquist och Olivia Svedmark.
