Vinge advises Fortum in connection with the sale of heating operations outside Stockholm

December 14, 2010

Vinge has advised Fortum in connection with the sale of its distance heating operations and appurtenant facilities outside the Stockholm region to Macquarie funds. The sales price amounted to SEK 2 billion. Fortum sold the operations in order to concentrate its operational focus on power and heating production and business development in the Stockholm region. The transaction comprised both municipal and distance heating operations and industrial co-operations. All of the operations are located in the east, west and central parts of Sweden.
 
Vinge's team consisted of Johan Göthberg, Björn Gustavsson, Johan Cederblad, Johan Norström, Oska Löthberg, Mikaela Mars and Nicolina Kindblom.

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.
