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.

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.
