Ahlstrom and Munksjö review extended by European Commission

March 16
15:39 2013

The European Commission has extended its review period for the combination of Ahlstrom’s Label and Processing business and Munksjö.

Ahlstrom and Munksjö submitted a proposal last week to the commission related to the proposed combination of the Label and Processing business and Munksjö with respect to abrasive backings and pre-impregnated décor paper businesses.

The EU Commission has extended the review period of the remedy proposal until 7 June.

Ahlstrom proposed that the abrasive backings and pre-impregnated décor paper businesses, including two production lines in Osnabrück, Germany, will be divested to a third party in order to resolve the competition issues.

The commission opened an investigation into the combination in December 2012 citing competition concerns in the markets of pre-impregnated paper (PRIP) and abrasive paper backings, where the merged firm would have high market shares in the European Economic Area (EEA) and worldwide.
