EC objects to Telenor-Telia Denmark merger proposal

Wednesday 24 June 2015 | 09:23 CET | News
Telenor and TeliaSonera said the European Commission has addressed a statement of objections to the companies regarding the proposed merger of their operations in Denmark but they are confident that it will be approved during the second half of 2015. They said that, contrary to the concerns raised in the statement of objections, they firmly believe that the merger would ultimately be beneficial for competition and Danish consumers. They added that a statement of objections is an ordinary event in the context of a merger of this type.
