    Helsinki District Court Dismissed Metsähallitus’ claim concerning Roundwood purchases in Finland

    On 22 June 2016, the Helsinki District Court gave its ruling in the so-called wood cartel case, where Metsähallitus, a state owned forest owner, claimed 159.4m euros jointly from three forest companies, Stora Enso, UPM and Metsäliitto. This is the largest damage case in the Finnish history and many factual and expert economist witnesses were heard in the court. The court, however, dismissed the claim in its entirety. In its ruling, the court argued that the economic evidence did not support the claimant's claim of economic damage. In the case, Copenhagen Economics prepared economic analysis and evidence for Stora Enso.

    Stora Enso is a leading provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions and paper on global markets.

    New study: Is Swedish mining attractive?

    As in all other countries, exploration for minerals and metals in Sweden has been hit hard by declining commodity prices in recent years. Still, we find that investing in Swedish mining is attractive due to good physical potential, cheap and easy access to key inputs of energy and infrastructure and stable and reliable regulatory and fiscal regimes.

    That said, a trend of rising opposition towards mining and recent court rulings might prove to increase uncertainty and unpredictability of licensing procedures, especially harmful for long term and sunk investments in exploration and mining activities. Over time, failure to secure a pool of prospective mines may negatively affect the otherwise strong cluster of service and tech firms centred on Swedish mining. We suggest looking into incentive schemes for smaller exploration companies to maintain strong position.

    David Nordström and Amanda Stefansdotter speak at the largest political event in Sweden

    Today, two of our experts, David Nordström and Amanda Stefansdotter, speak at the Almedalen seminar in Sweden about gaming regulation, titled: “What is the optimal tax rate on a reregulated Swedish gaming market?” 

    The theme of the seminar is the reregulated gaming market in Sweden; which tax rates that would optimally balance tax revenues for the Swedish government; and the amount of gaming occurring on regulated websites. The presentation is followed by a debate about the results by Maria Malmer Stenergard (M), Group Leader of the Swedish Tax Committee and tax policy spokesperson, and Sara Karlsson (S), member of the Swedish Tax Committee.

    The seminar takes place at the annual Almedalsveckan on Gotland which is the largest political event in Sweden.
