Vinge advises Smart Eye in a directed new share issue of MSEK 200

May 22, 2019

Vinge has advised Smart Eye AB (Nasdaq First North) on a directed new share issue that provides Smart Eye with approximately MSEK 200.

The subscription price, i.e. SEK 101.50, has been determined by an accelerated book‑building procedure corresponding to a discount of 1.6 per cent compared to the closing price on Nasdaq First North on 21 May 2019. Första AP‑fonden becomes a new major shareholder in the company after having been allotted more than half of the shares in the new issue and thereby becomes the third largest owner with 6.6 per cent of the shares and votes. In total, five major Nordic institutions were allotted approximately 75 per cent of the shares in the new share issue. The purpose of the new share issue is to finance the continued development of the business and an expanded offer towards the Chinese market. Carnegie Investment Bank has acted as sole bookrunner.

Vinge’s team has primarily consisted of responsible partner Anders Strid together with Wibeke Sorling and Edin Agic (Capital Markets), Gu Qun (China Practice), Alexander Lindeberg (IP), Victor Ericsson (Tax) as well as company assistant Camilla Andersson.

Extensive amendments to the Swedish Protective Security Act - increased obligations and a comprehensive sanctions system

Extensive amendments to the Swedish Protective Security, which include increased obligations for operators of security-sensitive activities and a comprehensive sanctions system, are proposed to enter into force on 1 December 2021. These changes, which were presented in a Government bill of 18 March 2021, generate new and far-reaching obligations for many companies, especially in view of the severe sanctions that may be imposed if the obligations are not complied with.
