Vinge advises Nordea and Swedbank in connection with K2A’s establishment of its MTN programme

May 21, 2021

Vinge has advised Nordea Bank Abp and Swedbank AB (publ) as lead arrangers and issuing agents in connection with the structuring, documenting and establishment of K2A Knaust & Andersson Fastigheter AB (publ) (”K2A”) unsecured medium term note programme (the “MTN Programme”). The MTN Programme is part of K2A’s debt financing and allows K2A to issue senior unsecured medium term notes in an aggregate amount of up to SEK 3,000,000,000 in SEK or EUR, with a minimum tenor of one year.

In contrast to customary MTN programmes, the MTN Programme was structured to be aligned with the terms and structure of high yield bonds issued on a standalone basis – making the MTN Programme one of the first of its kind in Sweden.

K2A has prepared a base prospectus which has been approved by, and registered with, the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority.

Vinge’s team consisted of Mikael Ståhl, Lionardo Ojeda and Felix Möller.

Vinge presents the Swedish chapter for the 2022 version of The Legal 500: Private Equity Country Comparative Guide

The guide provides an overview of the Swedish Private Equity market and the salient legislation in connection with PE transactions in Sweden.

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.
