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.

Sweden proposes a new law on investment screening which will have significant implications for transactions

Contrary to the situation in many other countries, there are currently only limited possibilities to regulate or prevent foreign direct investments in Sweden that could entail risks to Swedish security interests. Existing regulatory frameworks, such as the Protective Security Act (Sw. Säkerhetsskyddslagen), are limited to certain areas, to certain activities and to specific situations. The final report of the Inquiry of foreign direct investments (Sw. Granskning av utländska direktinvesteringar), published on 1 November 2021, puts forward a proposal for new legislation to address this gap.
