Vinge advises Capillar in connection with Sweden’s first ever de-SPAC

March 22, 2022

Capillar and the minority shareholders have entered into an agreement to sell all shares in Spolargruppen Sverige AB, a Swedish leading player in pipe lining (so-called relining) and pipe flushing, to tbd30 AB (publ), a so called SPAC (Special Purpose Acquisition Company).

In connection with the proposed transaction, a process is initiated (so-called “de-SPAC” or company combination) which includes, among other things, that Nasdaq Stockholm AB examines the intended acquisition, application for listing and change of trading venue to Nasdaq First North Growth Market within the framework of Nasdaq Stockholm's regulations regarding SPACs.

As part of the continued financing, a number of institutional and other investors, including Lannebo Fonder and Carnegie Fonder, have undertaken to subscribe for 1,500,000 new class A shares in tbd30 in a directed new share issue at SEK 100 per share.

Vinges team primarily consists of Christina Kokko, Joacim Rydergård, Hannah Kajlinger and Philip Moré (M&A), Linnéa Sellström (Equity Capital Markets) as well as Matthias Schömer and Henrik Wastenson (Tax).
