Mandate VINGE ADVISES ANICURA IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE ACQUISITION OF VETERINÄRMOTTAGNING I NÄSUM

December 03, 2014

Vinge has advised AniCura in conjunction with its acquisition of the veterinary clinics, Veterinärmottagning i Näsum and its branch in Bromölla, which is located close to Kristianstad. The merger entails that the veterinary clinics have thereby gained a strong partner to assist in their future expansion efforts and at the same time AniCura has strengthened its position in southern Sweden. AniCura is a leader in advanced veterinary care for dogs, cats and other companion animals. The company was founded on the notion of combining resources to provide better veterinary care. Established in 2011, AniCura is the first merger of companion animal hospitals in the Nordic region, and is currently the only Nordic veterinary care group exclusively focused on companion animals.

Vinge’s team consisted of partner Jonas Bergström together with, among others, associates Gustav Jönsson and Ulrika Andersson.
