Vinge advises Hansa Biopharma in connection with a directed share issue

July 13, 2020

The board of directors of Hansa Biopharma has, on the basis of an authorisation granted from the annual general meeting, resolved on a directed new issue of shares, whereby Hansa Biopharma will raise proceeds of SEK 1.1 billion, before issue costs.

The share issue was made on the basis of an accelerated bookbuilding process carried out by Morgan Stanley, Kempen & Co and Zonda Partners, and was multiple times oversubscribed due to high demand from US, European and Swedish institutional investors.

Hansa Biopharma is leveraging its proprietary enzyme technology platform to develop immunomodulatory treatments for enabling transplantations and rare immunoglobulin G (IgG)- mediated autoimmune conditions, transplant rejection and cancer.

Vinge’s team consisted of Dain Hård Nevonen, Malte St Cyr Ohm, Stephanie Stiernstedt and Hampus Olsson.

 

Vinge authors the Swedish contribution regarding tax disputes for The Legal 500

International companies run the risk of the erroneous management of tax issues when conducting operations in several jurisdictions. In such event, disputes can arise with the relevant tax authorities. The Legal 500 has now introduced a dedicated chapter on tax disputes in its comparative guide for the first time and Ulrika Bengtsson, advokat and counsel, has been selected to provide a clear picture of the Swedish tax litigation system.

The wide reach of the prohibition against circumventing EU sanctions

Against the background of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EU has imposed a number of sanctions, which include a prohibition for companies within the EU to take certain measures in relation to Russia, as well as designated Russian people and entities on the sanction lists. Furthermore, a prohibition to circumvent the sanctions has been introduced in order to ensure that the sanctions are effective also in practice. When it comes to this circumvention prohibition, it is important to be aware of its wide interpretation, as established by the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Commission.
