Vinge advises Industrifonden in connection with investment in Footway

January 26, 2012

Vinge has advised Industrifonden in connection with its investment in Footway, an e-trading company which sells shoes online. The investment was part of a new issue of shares under which Footway raised SEK 28 million from Industrifonden, eEquity and the company’s founders.  One of the key figures in Footway is Daniel Mühlbach, who played a prominent role in the success of Lensway. The money will be used for Footway’s expansion in the Nordic region.

Industrifonden invests in small and medium sized companies which exhibit the potential for international growth. The fund has assets of SEK 3.8 billion and investments in 89 companies within the technology, cleantech, life science and industrial sectors. 

Vinge’s team consisted of partner Johan Larsson and associate Martin Hall.

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.
