Bilia AB acquires Eneqvist Bil AB

May 12, 2005

Bilia AB has acquired Eneqvist Bil AB through the subsidiary Bilia Personbilar AB, for an undisclosed sum. Stockholm-based Eneqvist Bil AB is an authorised retailer of Volvo and Renault. The seller was Eneqvist-bolagen AB, the parent company in a family owned group of approximately 15 subsidiaries. Bilia Personbilar and Eneqvist-bolagen signed a letter of intent with a view to Bilia acquiring all the shares in Eneqvist Bil in December 2003. The transaction was realised after the approval of the Swedish Competition Authority in February 2004. In 2003 the annual turnover of Eneqvist Bil AB amounted to MSEK 500 (MEUR 55).

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
