Vinge advises founder and major shareholders on the sale of Dynamic Code AB

September 17, 2021

Vinge is advising the founder and major shareholders in connection with the sale of Dynamic Code AB.

Dynamic Code develops and sells self-sampling kits based on DNA technology. The samples are analysed in Dynamic Code’s own lab and the test results are obtained through a code online. Care and treatment is thereafter offered via digital health care providers and Dynamic Code has, based on that, been able to create a complete chain of health care through its e-health platform.

Closing of the transaction is subject to due diligence and that shareholders representing 95 per cent of all shares in Dynamic Code adhere to the share transfer agreement.

The Vinge team includes Anna Edström, Magnus Hedsund and Niklas Törnell.

 

New statute prohibits unfair terms and conditions and practices in conjunction with the purchase of agricultural and food products

The so-called UTP Act prohibits buyers from using certain terms and conditions and practices against suppliers of agricultural and food products. The Swedish Competition Authority exercises supervision and can, among other things, carry out unannounced inspections and order individual to attend formal interviews. In conjunction with violations, sanctions such as injunctions subject to a default fine or a sanction fee of up to one per cent of the buyer’s annual turnover can be imposed. The UTP Act will enter into force on 1 November 2021 and will also be applicable to contracts which are entered into prior to this date.

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.
