  • [02] Commission clears Rio Tinto takeover bid for Australia's North

  • [01] Commission clears acquisition of joint control of Cokowi by OMV and Rheinbraun

    The European Commission has granted regulatory approval to an operation whereby Austrian company OMV AG and German company Rheinbraun AG, will acquire joint control of the Cokowi Group, an Austrian wholesaler and retailer of fuel oil and solid fuels. The deal does not significantly alter the competitive structure of the markets for fuel oils, solid fuels and petrol in Austria.

    [02] Commission clears Rio Tinto takeover bid for Australia's North

    The European Commission has granted clearance under the European Union's merger control law to Rio Tinto's proposed takeover bid for Australian mining group North. The companies' activities overlap only in a limited number of metals and minerals markets and the Commission's review concluded to the absence of a dominant position in any of those markets.

    [03] Commission clears acquisition by Callahan of a second Deutsche Telekom regional cable TV network

    The European Commission has given its green light to the partial sale by Deutsche Telekom (DT) of its regional cable TV network in Baden-Württemberg, in southwest Germany, to Callahan Associates International (Callahan). This is Callahan's second acquisition of a cable network from DT. This operation will lead to stronger competition for the provision of telecomunications and Internet services over the cable network

    [04] Aide humanitaire au Yemen : la Commission approuve un financement de 1.740.000 euros

    La Commission européenne a approuvé une décision de 1.740.000 euros en faveur de la population locale et des réfugiés du Yemen et de l'île de Soqotra. Géré par l'Office d'Aide Humanitaire (ECHO), ce financement permettra au cours des dix prochains mois la prise en charge des secteurs prioritaires suivants : santé ; eau ; infrastructure. L'UNICEF et les organisations non-gouvernementales chargées de la mise en oeuvre des projets concentreront leur programme d'assistance sur les enfants en bas âge, les réfugiés somaliens et éthiopiens et la population de Soqotra. Les domaines d'intervention comprennent la vaccination contre la rougeole (population locale et réfugiée), la construction et réparation de puits et citernes, les travaux de réhabilitation et de restructuration (habitat, écoles) et la construction d'abris, structures d'accueil et entrepôts de produits pharmaceutiques. A l'heure actuelle, les réfugiés somaliens, éthiopiens et érythréens, et les rapatriés yéménites, vivent dans des camps situés à la périphérie des villes, dans des conditions précaires. Le montant global des actions humanitaires financées par ECHO au Yemen depuis 1993 s'élève à 4.520.000 euros.
