  Scania Sets New Patent Record

SÖDERTÄLJE, Sweden -- February 28, 2014

Scania AB (STO:SCVA) (STO:SCVB)

In 2013, more than 700 invention disclosures were submitted to Scania’s Patent
Department, 40 percent over the 2012 figure.

A continuing trend is that the majority of these invention disclosures are
generated in the development of electronics and control systems. Within
Scania’s Research and Development, the departments for powertrain control
systems development and the department for hybrid technology development
submitted most ideas – five inventions per every ten employees.

Consequently, a new record of 285 first filed patent applications was set
during the year. “We are excited to see new record levels year after year,”
says Stina Sjögren Paulsson, Head of Scania’s Patent Department. “With all the
inventions in our pipeline, I wouldn’t be at all surprised if we reach an even
higher figure when we summarise 2014.”

Since each patent application often triggers applications in several
countries, Scania’s total patent portfolio has grown consistently for several
years.
