Animatrix new majority owner of Najadvarvet

Mannheimer Swartling has advised UK-based Animatrix Capital LLP in connection with its investment in Najadvarvet AB, the Swedish sailing yacht manufacturer. After a directed share issue, privately-held Animatrix increases its stake from a minority position to hold 91% of Najadvarvet.

Najadvarvet, headquartered on Orust on the west coast of Sweden, was founded in 1971 and manufactures approximately 80 exclusive sailing yachts annually for customers around the world. The directed share issue was undertaken to strengthen the company’s long term financing structure and increase financial flexibility.

Mannheimer Swartling partners Johan Ljungberg and Zoran Stambolovski were responsible for the matter and were assisted by Jesper Kuschel, Susanne Forsberg and Isabel Frensborg.
