Vinge advises Isofol in connection with IPO

March 14, 2017

Vinge has advised Isofol Medical AB (publ) in connection with its listing on Nasdaq First North Premier. As a part of the offer, a new issue of shares directed to the general public and institutional investors has been conducted which is expected to generate MSEK 430-473 for Isofol depending on whether an over-subscription option is exercised.

The prospectus is expected to be published on 20 March 2017 and the first day of trading on First North Premier is planned for 4 April 2017. The subscription price in the offer is SEK 29 per share, which corresponds to a value of Isofol of approximately MSEK 487 prior to the offer.

Isofol is an oncology company which clinically develops Modufolin which is a first choice medicament in conjunction with treatment of spread colorectal cancer and is standard therapy in conjunction with high dosage treatment with metotrexat of osteosarcoma. Isofol thus intends to replace the existing folate-based medicaments leukovorin and levoleukovorin, which are currently considered to be the standard treatment within these treatment areas.

Through a worldwide, exclusive license agreement Isofol Medical holds all rights to a global commercialization of Modufolin for cancer treatment as well as access to Merck KGaA’s (Darmstadt, Germany) patent-protected manufacturing process and production capacity.

Vinge’s team primarily consisted of responsible partner Anders Strid, partners Jesper Schönbeck and Magnus Pauli, associates Frida Bäckegren, Natalie Bäck, Petronella Hallberg, Victor Ericsson and company assistant Camilla Andersson.

The prohibition imposed by EU law on complying with secondary sanctions laid down by the United States against Iran may be relied on in civil proceedings

On Tuesday 21 December, the EU Court of Justice delivered its long-awaited judgment in the Bank Melli Iran case (Case C-124/20) on the interpretation of the EU Blocking Statute regarding compliance with third country sanctions. According to the Court, the prohibition imposed by EU law on complying with secondary sanctions laid down by the United States against Iran may be relied on in civil proceedings. Following the Court’s judgment, anyone seeking to terminate a contract with a person or business subject to US sanctions must thoroughly consider if the termination is motivated by other reasons than the existing sanctions and reflect on whether to apply to the Commission for a derogation from the Blocking Statute.
