January 31, 2011

Vinge acted as legal adviser in connection with Fagerberg & Dellby Fond I AB’s acquisition of BIG BAG Sweden AB together with the management of APELNS Express AB, Leif Karlberg and Claes Cardell, to form a new player in the recycling industry.

The combination of BIG BAG and APELNS creates a strong player in the environmentally sound collection and recycling of construction, industrial and office waste and bulky waste from properties. A total of 99% of the collected waste is recycled, reused or used for combustion purposes thanks to Sweden’s probably most technically advanced automated processing and sorting facility. BIG BAG and APELNS have a combined turnover of approximately SEK 215 million and both have attracted attention as so-called gazelle companies. Fagerberg & Dellby invests in Swedish family-owned companies and is owned by the founders Christina Fagerberg and Ulrika Dellby together with several family business entrepreneurs and pension funds.

Vinge’s team advising Fagerberg & Dellby consisted of partners Malin Leffler and Fabian Ekeblad together with, among others, associates Jonas Johansson, Paul Dali, Emma Lindelöf and Sofia Berg.
