    New study: A real opportunity to transform Jokkmokk

    Today, our client Beowulf Mining Plc., a mineral exploration and development company with projects in Sweden and Finland, publishes the presentation ‘Kallak – A real asset, and a real opportunity to transform Jokkmokk’, prepared by Copenhagen Economics.

    The presentation compiles socio-economic work carried out on the Kallak iron-ore project in Northern Sweden, and summarises the potential of the Kallak project to transform the local economy of Jokkmokk, the Norrbotten region, and Sweden. Furthermore, the presentation outlines a plan for how to fully exploit the economic potential in close collaboration with local stakeholders and through commercial partnerships. This follows from Copenhagen Economics’ approach to local value creation and matches the development philosophy of Beowulf Mining Plc.

    Is the new OECD Guidance on Profit Split fit for purpose?

    Last week, Copenhagen Economics submitted our comments to the OECD’s Public Discussion Draft on the Profit Split Method.

    In the comment, we point out that the discussion draft does not provide taxpayers and tax administrations with a thorough and univocal guidance on when and how to apply the profit split method.

    Rather, we believe that some paragraphs could create confusion and lead to a misuse of the method.

    Our concerns relate to three overall issues:

    • The proposed hierarchies are not based on sound business arguments
    • The discussion draft should clarify the key concepts underpinning the profit split method
    • The discussion draft should make technical clarifications with respect to the economic ownership of intangibles and the use of segregated vs. total profits

    Damage claims against Finnish forest companies dismissed by court

    Last week, the Helsinki District Court gave its decision in the first eight damages cases of private forest owners vs. the three large forest companies, Stora Enso, Metsäliitto and UPM.

    In its decision, the district court states that the claimants have not been able to show that the cartel would have caused any damage on the claimants and, hence, dismisses the damage claims entirely. The court refers largely to the economic evidence provided in the cases, in which Copenhagen Economics acted as Stora Enso’s economic expert.

    The eight decisions are part of the large package of separate damage cases issued by over 450 private forest owners against the three forest companies, where the forest owners claim to have suffered around 12 million euros of total financial damages due to the wood procurement cartel in 1997-2004. Given the large amount of separate cases in this private forest owner process, the district court decided to publish its first decisions now and rest by the end of the year.
