Vinge has advised J.P. Morgan Securities Ltd (”J.P. Morgan”) with respect to Swedish law matters in connection with SAS AB’s (publ) SEK 1.60 billion directed issue of convertible bonds. J.P. Morgan is acting as sole bookrunner with respect to the issue. The bonds have been marketed principally to European institutional investors who have specialized knowledge of such instruments. Assuming that various conditions are met, among others that SAS’s annual general meeting authorizes the board of directors to resolve on an issue of convertibles and that the annual general meeting approves the previously announced rights issue, the bonds may be converted into ordinary shares.
Vinge’s team consisted of Rikard Stenberg, Johan Thiman and Mattias Schömer.
