Mandate Vinge assists SJ with financing from NIB

April 22, 2009

Vinge has advised SJ AB in connection with a financing transaction in which SJ is borrowing approximately SEK 500,000,000 (MEUR 45) from the Nordic Investment Bank (NIB) in order to partly finance 20 new high-speed trains. The new trains will constitute the base for SJ’s new traffic system and will be delivered during 2010.

”NIB imposes stringent demands for granting loan facilities and SJ had a significant advantage as a result of the positive environmental aspects which flow from development of, and investment in, train services in Sweden” says Fredrik Wilkens, partner at Vinge.

Vinge’s team consisted of responsible partner Fredrik Wilkens and associates Emma Stuart-Beck and Katarina Rykowska.
