November 08, 2021

Vinge has advised Tobii AB in connection with a directed share issue whereby the company receives approximately SEK 300 million in gross issue proceeds.

The share issue was carried out as an accelerated book building process and directed to selected Swedish and international institutional investors. Tobii intends to use the issue proceeds to finance the acquisition of Phasya, to finance the acquisition of Acapela Group and to strengthen the balance sheet in both Tobii and Tobii Dynavox in connection with the separate listing of Tobii Dynavox and thereby create headroom for further acquisitions and investments.

Vinge’s team has consisted of Jesper Schönbeck, Amanda Knutsson, Joel Magnusson and David Bokliden.

Renewable energy – The Council agrees on a temporary emergency regulation

In the beginning of November, the European Commission put forward a proposal regarding a framework to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy, with the ambition to speed up the transition to green energy and reduce the EU’s dependency on Russian fossil fuels. In line with the conclusions of the European Council at the end of October, the European Commission considers that the ongoing energy crisis requires immediate action to transpose parts of the REPowerEU plan, and therefore proposes to adopt a Council Regulation using Article 122(1) of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) as legal basis.
