FRANKFURT Feb 13 (Reuters) - Sweden-based financial investor Cevian Capital, which already owns 17.54 percent of voting rights in German industrial services provider Bilfinger , may further increase its stake over the next 12 months, it said on Wednesday.

It also said its investment was aimed at generating financial gains and was not of strategic nature. (Reporting by Christoph Steitz and Peter Dinkloh)
