Vinge advises EQT Infrastructure II in connection with its divestment of the Hector Rail group to Ancala Infrastructure

June 12, 2020

Vinge has advised EQT Infrastructure II in connection with entering into an agreement to divest the Hector Rail group to Ancala’s European Infrastructure Fund II.

Hector Rail was acquired by EQT Infrastructure II in November 2014 and is the largest private rail freight operator in Scandinavia with significant operations in Germany. With a fleet of over 100 locomotives and 400 employees, including approximately 250 train drivers, Hector Rail transports essential goods for a wide range of customers. Hector Rail also operates a growing domestic platform in Germany, the largest rail freight market in Europe, from which it focuses on attractive niche segments, such as energy and intermodal flows.

Vinge´s team consisted of Daniel Rosvall, Karl Klackenberg, Milad Kamali and Olivia Belding (M&A), Mikael Ståhl and Axel Jansson (Banking and Finance), Mathilda Persson (Commercial Agreements) and Kristoffer Sällfors (Regulatory).

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.
