Here is a decision of January 22, 2008, which dealt with the somewhat arcane issue of a subsidiary, which was a party to an arbitration clause, but then left the Group of companies involved as a consequence of an MBO. It was argued that by doing so, the former subsidiary would no longer be a party to the arbitration agreement. The argument was rejected (see pages 6 and 7).
