Majority of Carbodeon's shareholders have sold their shares to Enso as a part of the deal structure. This includes the largest previous shareholder - Picodeon Ltd Oy. Carbodeon shall maintain and strengthen its close business relationship with Picodeon, as parties shall jointly continue to exploit Carbodeon's Nicanite® in Picodeon's Coldab® deposition technology. Asko Vehanen will maintain his role as a CEO of Carbodeon. Dr. Vesa Myllymäki, will assume Carbodeon's CTO position on full time basis.
