The European Commission has cleared under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of Cadence Innovation, a Czech manufacturer of car components, by one of its competitors, Magna of Canada. Magna is a diversified global automotive components supplier. Cadence Innovation s.r.o. is the European branch of Cadence Innovation LLC, USA, and operates manufacturing facilities located in both the Czech Republic and Hungary. It is mainly active in the production of bumpers, radiator grills, door panels, instrument panels and other moulded plastic components. The parties' activities overlap only to a limited extent and the combined market shares of the merged entity would be rather low. Only on the market for plastic bumpers would the parties jointly have a market share of more than 15%. In the Commission's market investigation, customers of Magna and Cadence confirmed that a set of alternative suppliers for bumpers was easily available to them and that the proposed transaction was unlikely to have negative effects on the markets concerned. The Commission therefore concluded that the proposed transaction would not raise competition concerns.
