Mandate Vinge has advised Lendify in connection with a Swedish securitisation

May 22, 2017

Lendify AB (”Lendify”), a P2P-lending platform, has issued SEK 200,000,000 bonds on 30 May 2017 through its wholly-owned subsidiary Lendify Sweden 1 AB (publ).

The bonds have a tenor of three years and an annual interest rate of three-months Stibor + 5 %. The bonds are intended to be listed on the regulated market NDX, operated by Nordic Growth Market AB.

The bonds are backed by a portfolio of promissory notes issued by consumers in Sweden in favour of Lendify. The payment of interest and repayment of principal on the bonds are based on the cashflow from the portfolio. The entire documentation is governed by Swedish law and the collateral is held by Intertrust (Sweden) AB, who is also acting as agent for the bondholders.

Together with the management of the company, Carnegie Investment Bank AB (publ) as arranger and issuing agent and its legal advisors, Vinge acted for Lendify in the structuring and documentation of the transaction. Vinge’s team consisted of Jonas Johansson, Emma Stuart-Beck, Albert Wållgren, Louise Nordkvist and André Isacson.
