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.

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.
