April 17, 2015

Vinge advises when FAM AB, owned by the three largest Wallenberg Foundations, will become co-owner of Nefab by means of a targeted new share issue for SEK 1.1 billion. The Nordgren/Pihl family will continue as co-owners.

Nefab is currently active in 30 countries in Europe, North/South America and Asia. Products and services are supplied in these countries to customers in a number of different industry segments. Half or approximately 50% of Nefab’s sales come from global customers who need a supplier that can coordinate their packaging needs over several continents. Nefab’s global business set-ups are made possible through a strong local presence in the world’s leading industrial nations, and every year over 10,000 customers have their packaging needs met by the company. Nefab’s vision is to be the global partner for complete packaging solutions.

The deal is subject to approval by the relevant authorities.

Vinge’s team consists of responsible partner Jonas Johansson and associate Sofie Bjärtun, together with associates Kajsa Hallner and Nils-Fredrik Dehlin (corporate and M&A), counsel Johan Cederblad and associate Matilda Gustafsson (environment and real property), associates Marie Brommesson.

Renewable energy – The Council agrees on a temporary emergency regulation

In the beginning of November, the European Commission put forward a proposal regarding a framework to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy, with the ambition to speed up the transition to green energy and reduce the EU’s dependency on Russian fossil fuels. In line with the conclusions of the European Council at the end of October, the European Commission considers that the ongoing energy crisis requires immediate action to transpose parts of the REPowerEU plan, and therefore proposes to adopt a Council Regulation using Article 122(1) of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) as legal basis.
