Vinge has advised RusForest in connection with a restructuring

April 12, 2013

Vinge has advised RusForest AB (publ), a Swedish forestry company with operations in Russia, (“RusForest”) as it has completed a series of transactions in order to reduce the company’s debt and inject new working capital. As a first step, RusForest reduced the nominal amount and amended the terms and conditions of a listed bond. Subsequently, the reduced nominal amount was swapped into equity in a debt-to-equity swap. RusForest subsequently raised new capital through a rights issue to existing shareholders and a directed issue to the new majority shareholder, the Russian investment company Nova Capital LLC.

Vinge’s team has primarily consisted of Jesper Schönbeck, David Andersson and Joakim Hagberg as well as Maria Schultzberg and Maria Doeser with respect to tax and Robert Wikholm with respect to insolvency issues.
