Vinge has advised Fortinova Fastigheter AB (publ) (“Fortinova”) in connection with its listing on Nasdaq First North Premier Growth Market (“Nasdaq First North Premier”). The prospectus was published on 6 November 2020 and the trading on Nasdaq First North Premier commenced on 19 August 2020.

The offering comprised of 18,200,000 newly issued shares and the final price in the offering was set to SEK 44 per share, corresponding to a market value of Fortinova of SEK 2,200 million after the completion of the offering.

As of 31 August 2020, Fortinova owned investment properties valued at SEK 2,261 million, of which residential properties make up approximately 86 per cent, with the remainder of the property value attributable to community service and commercial properties.

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.
