CONTENTS / CONTENU

  • [01] La Commission autorise Amadeus à acquérir le contrôle conjoint de Start
  • [02] Commission intends to allow GlobalOne to provide full telecommunication services within the EU
  • [03] La Commission autorise BSCH à acquérir le contrôle conjoint du groupe Champalimaud
  • [04] Commission clears a joint venture between Kirch (Germany) and Mediaset (Italy) in the TV sector

  • [01] La Commission autorise Amadeus à acquérir le contrôle conjoint de Start

    La Commission européenne a autorisé une opération dans le cadre de laquelle le groupe Amadeus, qui exploite un système informatisé de réservation international, prendra une participation minoritaire, lui conférant certains droits, dans le capital de Start Amadeus GmbH, son entreprise de vente et de marketing en Allemagne. Start était auparavant une filiale à 100% de Deutsche Lufthansa, qui exercera également le contrôle en commun sur cette entreprise. La Commission a conclu que l'opération n'aurait pas d'effet sur la concurrence.

    [02] Commission intends to allow GlobalOne to provide full telecommunication services within the EU

    The European Commission has indicated that it intends to allow GlobalOne, the joint venture created in 1996 by Deutsche Telekom, France Telecom and Sprint, to provide all telecommunications services, including voice telephony, in all the Member States of the European Union. Before adopting a formal decision to this end, the Commission has published a notice in the Official Journal inviting all interested parties to comment. The Commission's position is based on the market developments since it approved the creation of GlobalOne in 1996, including the entry into the market of other substantial competitors such as the BT/AT&T venture.

    [03] La Commission autorise BSCH à acquérir le contrôle conjoint du groupe Champalimaud

    La Commission européenne a autorisé l'opération par laquelle le groupe financier espagnol Banco Santander Central Hispano (BSCH) acquiert le contrôle conjoint du groupe de sociétés portugaises de M. Antònio Champalimaud. L'opération est compatible avec les règles de concurrence de l'Union européenne, car elle ne crée pas de position dominante. En effet, les deux entreprises ne détiennent pas, à elles deux, une part supérieure à 20 % du marché bancaire et du marché des assurances au Portugal, où elles sont présentes. Cet élément, ainsi que la puissance des concurrents et le caractère limité des barrières à l'entrée sur les marchés en cause, garantit que l'opération ne posera pas de problème sur le plan de la concurrence.

    [04] Commission clears a joint venture between Kirch (Germany) and Mediaset (Italy) in the TV sector

    The European Commission has authorised the Eureka joint venture between the Kirch and Mediaset groups of companies. Eureka will be mainly active in TV broadcasting, sale of TV advertising, TV productions and distribution of TV rights internationally. Since both groups are essentially active in different geographic markets, there is no significant overlap between them. Also, the activities related to the assets transferred to Eureka are essentially complementary. The creation of Eureka will not, therefore, create or strengthen a dominant position in the European Economic Area agreement.
