Vinge has advised EQT AB in connection with its inaugural 500 MEUR bond
May 17, 2021
EQT AB (publ) has completed the issuance of a EUR 500,000,000 sustainability-linked bond maturing in 2031. The bond’s coupon is subject to an increased rate upon the occurrence of triggers linked to certain sustainability performance targets.
Vinge, together with Latham & Watkins, advised EQT AB.
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.
Vinge’s specialists within Maritime and Transport law have been requested to contribute with a chapter explaining the Swedish legislative framework in relation to maritime law in the International Comparative Legal Guides, ICLG.
