The prospectus was published on 17 May 2017 and the first day of trading on Nasdaq Stockholm was 31 May 2017. The price in the offering was SEK 62 per share, corresponding to a market value of Boozt of approximately SEK 3,493 million. The offering comprised 26,015,604 shares, of which 6,451,000 shares were newly issued shares and 19,564,604 were existing shares offered by Sunstone Technology Ventures Fund II K/S, Verdane Capital VII K/S, ECCO Holding A/S, Sampension KP Livsforsikring A/S and the board member Kent Stevens Larsen. The total value of the offering amounted to approximately SEK 1,854 million assuming that the over-allotment option is fully exercised.

Boozt targets Nordic fashion followers, primarily consumers aged 25-54 that value convenience in their customer experience and which tend to generate a high average order value.

Vinge’s team primarily consisted of Jesper Schönbeck, David Andersson, Amanda Knutsson, Filip Brosset, Sara Osman and Josephine Andersson. Joacim Rydergård, Johanna Wiberg and Karl Klackenberg advised on due diligence. Louise Brorsson Salomon and Adam Sandberg advised on financing issues.

Arbitration proceedings between a Member State and an investor from another Member State further curtailed – the judgment of the EU Court of Justice in PL Holdings

Following the much debated judgment by the CJEU in Achmea, arbitration clauses in bilateral investment treaties between Member States under which an investor in one of those Member States may bring proceedings against the other Member State are considered incompatible with EU law. However, the judgment in Achmea seemed to leave it open whether an arbitration agreement between a Member State and an investor from another Member State not based on such a clause would be considered acceptable by the CJEU. Yesterday’s ruling by the Court in the Swedish case PL Holdings (Case C-109/20) dealt with one aspect of this question, resulting in further limits to investment arbitration in the EU.

New statute prohibits unfair terms and conditions and practices in conjunction with the purchase of agricultural and food products

The so-called UTP Act prohibits buyers from using certain terms and conditions and practices against suppliers of agricultural and food products. The Swedish Competition Authority exercises supervision and can, among other things, carry out unannounced inspections and order individual to attend formal interviews. In conjunction with violations, sanctions such as injunctions subject to a default fine or a sanction fee of up to one per cent of the buyer’s annual turnover can be imposed. The UTP Act will enter into force on 1 November 2021 and will also be applicable to contracts which are entered into prior to this date.
