Vinge has advised Surgical Science Sweden AB (publ) (“Surgical Science”) in connection with its acquisition of all shares in Mimic Technologies Inc for an initial consideration of SEK 150 million with a maximum deferred contingent consideration of SEK 130 million.

In order to finance the acquisition, Surgical Science has carried out a directed share issue. The directed share issue comprised of 3,279,676 newly issued shares at a subscription price of SEK 98.30 per share, whereby Surgical Science will receive gross proceeds of approximately SEK 322 million before transaction related costs. The subscription price has been determined through an accelerated book‑building procedure and corresponds to a premium of approximately 1 per cent to the closing price of SEK 97.40 per share on 20 January 2021 on Nasdaq First North Growth Market.

Surgical Science is a world leader in the manufacture of virtual reality simulators for evidence-based laparoscopic and endoscopic training. The simulators enable surgeons and other medical specialists to train and improve their psychomotor skills and instrument handling before entering the operating room. In parallel with its own products, Surgical Science works with simulation solutions for medical technology companies that develop surgical instruments for clinical use, such as robotic surgery.

Vinge’s team has consisted of Fredrik Sonander (M&A) and Edin Agic (Capital Markets).

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
