05:48 EDTUPS, TNTEYEuropean Commission confirms blocking of UPS takeover of TNT Express
The European Commission announced that it has prohibited under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of TNT Express (TNTEY) by UPS (UPS). The Commission found that the take-over would have restricted competition in 15 Member States when it comes to the express delivery of small packages to another European country. In these Member States, the acquisition would have reduced the number of significant players to only 3 or 2, leaving sometimes DHL as the only alternative to UPS, the EU said. The agency added, "The concentration would therefore have likely harmed customers by causing price increases. During the investigation, UPS offered to divest TNT's subsidiaries in these 15 countries and allow the buyer to access its intra-European air network for five years. The Commission carried out an in-depth assessment, including a market test where customers and other interested parties were consulted. However, these remedies proved inadequate to address the identified competition concerns." Recall that UPS dropped its takeover bid TNT Express, saying the merger would be blocked by the European Commission. Reference Link
