The head of Parat, Hans-Erik Skæggerud, told the TDN Finans news bureau that he was satisfied with the result.

“We have reached an agreement that gives a common superstructure for Norway and Denmark, and that gives us more or less the same agreement we have had for the past four years,” he told TDN Finans.
