Vinge advises Hansa Medical in connection with a directed share issue

November 15, 2018

The board of directors of Hansa Medical has resolved on a directed new issue of shares, whereby Hansa Medical will raise proceeds of approximately SEK 453 / USD 50 million, before issue costs.

The share issue is directed to a number of selected international and Swedish reputable investors and life sciences specialist investors, on the basis of an accelerated bookbuilding process conducted by Cowen, RBC Capital Markets and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken.

Hansa Medical is a biopharmaceutical company developing novel immunomodulatory enzymes for organ transplantation and acute autoimmune diseases. The company’s lead product, imlifidase, is a proprietary antibody-degrading enzyme in late-stage clinical development for kidney transplant patients and has significant potential for further development in other solid organ transplantation and in acute autoimmune indications.

Vinge’s team has consisted of Dain Hård Nevonen, Erik Sjöman, Joakim Hagberg and Edin Agic. 
 

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.
