EC extends deadline on E-Plus takeover to 03 July

Tuesday 20 May 2014 | 12:45 CET | News
The European Commission has again extended the deadline for deciding on Telefonica's proposed takeover of German mobile operator E-Plus from KPN. The deadline was extended by five working days to 03 July, according to the website of the Competition department. The extension is based on article 10 (3) 2 of the merger regulation, meaning the companies involved have either proposed new concessions to the EC or requested an extension in the process for their own purposes.
