April 13, 2022

Vinge advises Odevo in connection with the acquisition of OBOS minority stake of approx. 40 percent in SBC Intressenter HoldCo AB ("SBC") and OBOS’ subsequent investment in Odevo.

OBOS has been a minority investor in SBC since 2019. Through the divestment of its shares in SBC to Odevo, SBC becomes wholly owned by Odevo. Odevo was launched in February and is a new international player that challenges the traditional industry for property and housing management. The foundation for the group was created in 2019 through the formation of Nabo and the acquisition of SBC, and since then the group has grown into a leading international player. The companies within Odevo offer services to residents and property owners supported by Odevo’s own developed platform. The Odevo Group consists of a total of approximately 1,300 employees and has a turnover of just over SEK 1.5 billion.

Vinge’s team consisted of among others Jonas Bergstöm, Joacim Rydergård and Clara Sohlberg.
