The European Commission has cleared the proposed acquisition of Vattenfall Europe Generation and Vattenfall Europe Mining by Energetický a Průmyslový Holding (EPH) and PPF Investments (PPF). The Commission found the deal would not adversely affect competition in the relevant markets.
The Commission has assessed the impact of the proposed acquisition on competition in the markets for (i) the excavation and supply of lignite, (ii) the supply of pulverised lignite in Germany and (iii) generation and wholesale supply of electricity.
The Commission’s investigation has shown that the proposed transaction will not have an adverse effect on the market for the excavation and supply of lignite as neither of the parties exerts any competitive constraint on each other. Vattenfall’s activities are limited to the Lusatia region (« Lausitzer Revier ») in Germany while EPH, via its subsidiary Mibrag, operates open cast mines in Central Germany (« Mitteldeutsches Revier »).
The Commission considered that switching lignite supply between Vattenfall mines and EPH mines would be unlikely in the future for several reasons, including high transportation costs and differences in lignite quality between Vattenfall and EPH mines. Moreover, lignite will still face increasing competition from other sources of energy such as natural gas in the years ahead due to Germany’s energy policy aiming to reduce CO2 emissions, which will significantly constrain the parties after the transaction.
