Vinge advises on Fagerberg & Dellby’s acquisition of BIG BAG together with the management of APELNS

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.

Renewable energy – The Council agrees on a temporary emergency regulation

In the beginning of November, the European Commission put forward a proposal regarding a framework to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy, with the ambition to speed up the transition to green energy and reduce the EU’s dependency on Russian fossil fuels. In line with the conclusions of the European Council at the end of October, the European Commission considers that the ongoing energy crisis requires immediate action to transpose parts of the REPowerEU plan, and therefore proposes to adopt a Council Regulation using Article 122(1) of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) as legal basis.
