Second Phase Investigation into Aurubis/Metallo Group Holding published today in Official Journal
Last November, the Commission opened an in-depth investigation into the proposed acquisition of Metallo by Aurubis, thus opening a second phase investigation. The Commission was concerned that the acquisition could reduce competition in the purchasing of copper scrap for refining.
Today, the Official Journal has published the Commission’s decision, inviting interested third parties to submit their observations on the proposed concentration to the Commission within a time-limit of 15 days following publication.
