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.

The prohibition imposed by EU law on complying with secondary sanctions laid down by the United States against Iran may be relied on in civil proceedings

On Tuesday 21 December, the EU Court of Justice delivered its long-awaited judgment in the Bank Melli Iran case (Case C-124/20) on the interpretation of the EU Blocking Statute regarding compliance with third country sanctions. According to the Court, the prohibition imposed by EU law on complying with secondary sanctions laid down by the United States against Iran may be relied on in civil proceedings. Following the Court’s judgment, anyone seeking to terminate a contract with a person or business subject to US sanctions must thoroughly consider if the termination is motivated by other reasons than the existing sanctions and reflect on whether to apply to the Commission for a derogation from the Blocking Statute.
