August 14, 2017

Vinge has advised Stendörren Fastigheter AB (publ) (“Stendörren”) in connection with a bond issue of up to SEK 1,000 million senior unsecured floating rate bonds.

The bonds have a tenor of three years and a floating interest rate of three-months Stibor plus 4 per cent. ABG Sundal Collier AB and Swedbank have acted as financial advisors to Stendörren. Swedbank also acted as Issuing Agent.

The proceeds from the initial bond issue will primarily be used for refinancing of Stendörren’s outstanding SEK 750 million bonds, which will be made through a repurchase offer. The proceeds from the bond issue will also be used for acquisitions, investments and general corporate purposes. 

In accordance with the terms and conditions, the bonds are intended to be listed and admitted to trading on the corporate bond list at Nasdaq Stockholm shortly. As a result, the Company has prepared a prospectus which today has been approved by and registered with the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority.

Vinges team consisted of Louise Brorsson Salomon, David Andersson, Sabina Börjesson, Josefine Larsson, André Isacson, Lionardo Ojeda and William Kåge

New statute prohibits unfair terms and conditions and practices in conjunction with the purchase of agricultural and food products

The so-called UTP Act prohibits buyers from using certain terms and conditions and practices against suppliers of agricultural and food products. The Swedish Competition Authority exercises supervision and can, among other things, carry out unannounced inspections and order individual to attend formal interviews. In conjunction with violations, sanctions such as injunctions subject to a default fine or a sanction fee of up to one per cent of the buyer’s annual turnover can be imposed. The UTP Act will enter into force on 1 November 2021 and will also be applicable to contracts which are entered into prior to this date.

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.
