27 May 2014

EU - The European Commission has granted clearance under the EU Merger Regulation to the acquisition of joint control by Lantmännen ekonomisk förening of Sweden and Dansk Landbrugs Grovvareselskab over HaGe Polska of Poland.

Lantmännen is a Swedish farmers' cooperative active in agriculture, machinery, energy and food. DLG is a Danish farmers' cooperative operating in the agricultural sector offering products and services to farmers in Denmark and other European countries.

Hage Polska is engaged in the wholesale of agricultural commodities, including grains, seeds and fertilisers.

The transaction was examined under the simplified merger review procedure, as there are only minor overlaps between the activities of the Parties to the concentration.
