February 01, 2022

Vinge advises Gunnebo Aktiebolag (“Gunnebo”) in connection with the divestment of its Cash Management business to Sesami Cash Management Technologies Corporation, a cash ecosystem solution company controlled by GardaWorld Security Corporation.

The Cash Management business includes automated cash handling solutions, software and services for closed cash handling, cash recycling and cash deposit, for the purpose of creating a safer and more efficient cash cycle and reducing the cost of handling notes and coins.

The divestment is part of Gunnebo’s transformation journey started in 2020, leaving the integrated security and the cash management segments, to be able to focus on the global leading market positions within the business units Entrance Control and Safe Storage.

The transaction is expected to be closed by 1 March 2022.

Vinge’s team consisted of Christina Kokko, Matthias Pannier, Maria Dahlin Kolvik, Viktor Lennartsson and Nina Fathjalali (M&A), Mathilda Persson and Martin Boström (Commercial Agreements/IT), Stojan Arnerstål and Michael Montner (IP), and Cathrin Larsson, Sara Dahlros Sköld and Christoffer Widström (VDR).

Historically, private equity firms have often managed their funds from abroad. More recently, there has been a clear reversal of this trend in favour of repatriating the management of funds and establishing funds as Swedish limited companies. Vinge has formed a new Private Funds practice group in order to be in a better position to advise in conjunction with Swedish fund formations.

The European Commission proposes a new Single Market Emergency Instrument

On 19 September 2022, the Commission adopted a proposal for a new regulation on an emergency instrument for the Single Market. Following the Covid-19 pandemic and other crises in the last years, the Union has seen internal entry restrictions, unpredictable rules and supply disruptions which, according to the Commission, have highlighted that there are structural shortcomings in the EU legal framework on the Single Market. The proposed emergency instrument aims to preserve the free movement of goods, services and persons and to ensure the availability of essential goods and services in the event of future emergencies.
