The Redomestication is carried out by way of a scheme of arrangement under Bermuda law, whereby Swedish Depository Receipts in VNV Global Ltd. will be exchanged for shares in the Swedish group entity VNV Global AB (publ) that, following the Redomestication, will constitute the new parent company of the group.

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.
