The M&A Commission is delighted to invite you to a very special winter seminar on top of the Nordics, in Levi, Finland.

The seminar will have a main focus on Private Equity transactions.

As we are in the wilderness we will also strain a little bit from the beaten path and explore what is special about doing transactions in the Nordics and what cultural and business differences there are between the Nordic countries.

In addition, we are very pleased that our good colleagues in the antitrust commission will come and provide us with valuable insight on "killer-acquisitions".

We are also very happy to announce that Friday’s academic programme will be completed in the magical surroundings by the open fire where the seminar guests can listen the captivating story of a real unicorn. Namely, it is with great pleasure the Organising Committee announces that the COO of Supercell Inc, Janne Snellman, will be joining us for a laid-back fireside chat sharing with us his experiences on how a small start-up was developed into the world’s biggest game developer (Hay Day, Clash of Clans, Brawl Stars, among others). In his roles as the company’s CFO and COO, with degrees in both law and finance, Janne has been in the front seat all the way from the beginning and instructed a vast amount of legal teams and advisors globally, inter alia, in connection with VC and PE funding rounds leading to the latest transaction regarding Supercell where Chinese conglomerate Tencent Holdings acquired an 81.4% stake in the company valued at 8.4 billion euros. 

Social Programme

In addition to very interesting and in-depth academic topics with experienced speakers, this year’s winter seminar organising committee has put together a fantastic social programme offering both first-timers in Lapland as well as returning reindeer spotters a variety of exotic activities, including husky ride, snowmobile safari, arctic sauna experience with hot outdoor baths under aurora borealis and a winter adventure in the village of elves. And who knows, if you have been very kind before and also after Christmas, you might run into the real Santa Claus…

Choose your favourite activity or book them all - you won’t regret it. This will be unique. Please note that extracurricular optional social activities are subject to additional fees and even though the Organising Committee will use reasonable best efforts to accommodate everyone interested on board, certain activities may have a limited number of slots and they will be issued  on “first booked, first served” basis.

As the daylight time above arctic circle is very short, from approximately 10 am to 3 pm in January, all the planned activities are organised so that they can be performed in the deep blue colour of the Lapland’s magical darkness. Also the ski slopes are illuminated and the lifts are open until early evening. Temperatures can vary greatly at this time of year, so be prepared for anything between gentle sub-zero temperatures (-2 to -5 degrees centigrade) to mind-blowing (and hell-freezing) -30 degrees and below.
