WallVision acquires Wall&decó

November 22, 2017

Vinge together with the Italian law firm Pavia e Ansaldo have advised WallVision in conjunction with the acquisition of the Italian premium brand Wall&decó.

The previous owner will continue to work in the company and reinvest in WallVision. WallVision is a leading wallpaper manufacturer in the Nordic region. Through the acquisition of Wall&deco, WallVision has strengthened its international presence and includes yet another strong trademark in the group. The acquisition is anticipated to be completed in the middle of January 2018. Following the acquisition, WallVision will have a turnover (pro forma) of approximately SEK 600 million and approximately 210 employees.

Partner Johan Winnerblad advised on the transaction.

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.
