October 21, 2011

Cavotec is a global engineering group, supplying innovative and environmentally friendly systems to the ports and maritime, airports, mining and tunnelling and general industry sectors.

Cavotec MSL Holdings Ltd has been listed on the New Zealand Exchange since 2007. In April 2011, the shareholders of Cavotec MSL Holdings Ltd voted in favour of a so called Scheme of Arrangement in order to move the domicile of Cavotec to Switzerland with a new parent company, Cavotec SA. The Board of Directors of Cavotec SA has subsequent to the decision applied for and received approval for listing of Cavotec SA’s shares on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm.

The objective of the listing on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm is to locate the company closer to its main markets and to access a stronger and broader investor base. The last day of trading in the Cavotec MSL Holding Ltd share on the New Zeeland Exchange was 26 September 2011 and the first day of trading in the Cavotec SA share on NASDAQ OMX Stockholm was 19 October 2011.

Vinge’s team has primarily consisted of Göran Nyström, Jesper Schönbeck and Joakim Hagberg and, as regards tax law, Maria Doeser.

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.
