July 25, 2013

Vinge has advised the Spanish airport operator, Abertis Infraestructuras S.A. in connection with the sale of the British subsidiary, TBI, and its subsidiary, Stockholm Skavsta Flygplata AB. Stockholm Skavsta Flygplats is being sold together with airports in Belfast and Orlanda Sanford (Florida) airport terminal as well as TBI’s other management operations at airports in the United States to the North American airport operator, ADC & HAS Airports Worldwide. Stockholm Skavsta airport is Sweden’s third largest airport with approximately 2.5 million passengers per year. The airport has been owned by Abertis since 2005. The municipality of Nyköping will continue to hold 9.9% of the shares in Stockholm Skavsta Flygplats AB. The transaction is conditional upon approval by the relevant competition authorities and other public authorities.

Vinge’s team consisted of partner Michael Wigge together with, among others, associates Paul Dali (M&A), Johan Cederblad (real estate and environmental) and Åsa Gotthardsson (employment and pensions).

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.
