March 11, 2013

Vinge is advising Air Liquide Santé International in connection with its acquisition of NordicInfu Care AB. Air Liquide Santé International is Europe’s leading and the world’s third largest company within home healthcare and provides treatment for patients with chronic diseases, such as Parkinson, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and diabetes. Air Liquide Santé International posted revenues of EUR 2.5 billion in 2012 and has 10,000 employees. Air Liquide Santé International is a division within the publicly listed French group Air Liquide.

NordicInfu Care AB is a leading company in the Nordic countries within home infusion therapy for patients with chronic diseases such as Parkinson, PAH (Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension) and diabetes and had a turnover in 2012 of approximately EUR 22 million.

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.
