Mandate 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.
