On Friday, 29 April 2011, Bonnier announced that it had acquired WSOY, Finland’s leading publisher within general literature, from Sanoma. Together with the existing stake in Tammi, the acquisition will strengthen Bonnier’s position as a general literature publisher in Finland. At the same time, Sanoma acquired Bonnier Education and Tammi Learning from Bonnier. The transactions strengthen both Bonnier and Sanoma’s focus on their respective core operational areas. The acquisition of WSOY is subject to approval by the competent competition authority.

Vinge advised Bonnier in respect of all three acquisitions. Vinge’s team consisted of, among others, responsible partner Malin Leffler and associates Jonas Johansson and Nicolina Kindblom as well as paralegal Ida Norlin.
