Mandate Vinge advises owners of petrol company din-X in connection with divestment

March 30, 2021

Vinge acted as local counsel to the owners of the Scandinavian petrol company din-X in connection with the sale of the company to the Norweigan private equity fund Pioneer Capital.

The company was formed in 1961 as a Swedish counterpart to the Danish petrol company Uno-X. Din-X has had Danish owners since its formation 60 years ago, and the sellers of the company are the descendants of the original founders of Uno-X and din-X. Din-X is headquartered in Helsingborg and operates just below 200 petrol stations with an annual revenue in excess of SEK 1.5bn.

Accura acted as lead counsel. The Vinge team includes Christina Kokko, Maria Dahlin Kolvik and Mikaela Falkner (M&A) and Thomas Sjöberg (Environment).
