Removal of claim about parent company[edit]

I removed a claim introduced with wrong syntax by an anonymous user (see User talk:116.118.35.102) in the edit https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Paccar&diff=604255689&oldid=604197525 and later "corrected" (seemingly in good faith) by User:Seqqis, so that it became visible. While it is not financially impossible that the conglomerate Investor AB, with a market cap of more than USD 26 bn, would buy half of Paccar (with a total market cap less than USD 21 bn), there is no evidence at all that this might be the actual case, and obviously, both companies would be required to disclose such a transaction.

The same anonymous user made a corresponding edit to Investor AB—apparently so that the claim would seem correct to someone who does not bother checking sources outside of Wikipedia. Somewhat creepy and demonstrates the importance of not believing claims that lack references…--OttoG (talk) 15:44, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Paccar. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true or failed to let others know (documentation at {{Sourcecheck}}).

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked
