Vinge advises ITAB in connection with a recapitalisation of SEK 868 million

February 11, 2021

The recapitalisation is carried out to strengthen ITAB’s capital structure to reduce the financial leverage of the group, to invest in the One ITAB transformation plan and to provide sufficient headroom to the business given the Covid-19 situation.

The recapitalisation entails that the equity is strengthened by approx. SEK 868 million by a rights issue of SEK 768 million and a set-off issue of SEK 100 million and entails further that Aeternum Capital becomes ITAB’s largest shareholder with a holding of approx. 25 percent of the shares. First day of trading in the new class B shares issued as a result of the recapitalisation is estimated to be 22 March 2021.

ITAB sells, develops, manufactures and installs complete shop fitting concepts for retail chain stores. The offer includes custom-made fitting concepts, innovative solutions for the checkout area, professional lighting systems and interactive products. Customers include major retail chains throughout most of Europe. ITAB’s class B shares are listed on Nasdaq Stockholm.

Vinge’s team mainly consisted of Charlotte Levin, Rikard Lindahl, Annika Nyberg Ekenberg, Clara Sohlberg, Mikaela Falkner, Henrik Wastenson and David Bokliden.

Renewable energy – The Council agrees on a temporary emergency regulation

In the beginning of November, the European Commission put forward a proposal regarding a framework to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy, with the ambition to speed up the transition to green energy and reduce the EU’s dependency on Russian fossil fuels. In line with the conclusions of the European Council at the end of October, the European Commission considers that the ongoing energy crisis requires immediate action to transpose parts of the REPowerEU plan, and therefore proposes to adopt a Council Regulation using Article 122(1) of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) as legal basis.
