On January the 25th 2008 the Board of Directors of Carlsberg A/S and Heineken N.V, as one part, and, as the other part, Scottish & Newcastle plc, announced that they had agreed upon the terms in the offer for Scottish & Newcastle which in turn sprang from a jointly owned company by Carlsberg and Heineken. The offer is based upon Scottish & Newcastle estimated value of GBP 7,6 billion. Baltic Beverages Holding AB, the jointly owned company of Carlsberg and Scottish & Newcastle, has played an important role in the connection to the discussions that have preceded the agreement. Vinge acts as legal advisors to Carlsberg on Swedish queries.

Vinge’s team included Hans Bagger and Finn Madsen (Litigation), Erik Sjöman (Corporate Law and Public M&A), assisted by, among others, Christina Ramberg and Andreas Eriksson.
