One example of this saw the firm advising the Solix Group on the financing for its acquisition of the Cembrit Group. Led by partner Morten Krogsgaard, this work was especially notable as the deal was structured to be paid in three tranches. Krogsgaard was again the key partner involved when the team assisted Credit Suisse on the Danish aspects of the $50 million royalty bond issuance by Zealand. This was the first ever royalty bond issued by a Danish company and involved a non-dilutive and non-recourse bond financing backed by 86.5% of the future annual royalties - and other payments which the company is entitled to - on lixisenatide – a drug used to treat diabetes – as a stand-alone product under its license agreement with Sanofi.

That deal was demonstrative of a general improvement in the capital markets in Denmark this year, which the team at Bech-Bruun was able to capitalise on. Other examples saw Krogsgaard take the lead in acting for the PWT Group on the Danish law issues relating to PWT Holding’s placement of a kr300 million (€40 million) high-yield bond on the Nasdaq OMX Stockholm and in assisting SAS on the Danish aspects of its kr1.6 billion (€169 million) issuance of convertible bonds
