Vinge advises Capio in connection with acquisition of Backa Läkarhus

January 05, 2017

Capio Närsjukvård AB, a wholly owned subsidiary of Capio AB (publ) listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, has entered into an agreement for the acquisition of all shares in Backa Läkarhus AB which conducts operations through eleven district health centres and nine rehabilitation centres in the Västra Götaland Region and Region Halland.

The operations had a turnover of approximately MSEK 345 in 2016, and have 83 000 listed patients. Closing is subject to customary closing conditions from the relevant county councils and unconditional approval from the Swedish Competition Authority. The enterprise value amounts to MSEK 300.

Vinge’s team primarily consists of client responsible partner Anders Strid, Frida Bäckegren (project leader M&A), Lina André and Jonas Lindblad (employment), Gabriella Fossum (procurement), Mercedes Anderås (real estate), Camilla Andersson (corporate) as well as Pär Remnelid, among others (competition).

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.
