1.

On 9 December 2013 the Commission received a notification of a proposed concentration pursuant to Article 4 of Council Regulation (EC) No 139/2004 (1) by which the undertakings E.ON Sverige AB (‘E.ON Sverige’ of Sweden) ultimately controlled by E.ON SE and SEAS-NVE Holding A/S (‘SEAS-NVE Holding’ of Denmark) owned by SEAS-NVE A.m.b.a. acquire within the meaning of Article 3(1)(b) of the Merger Regulation joint control of the undertaking E.ON Vind Sverige AB (‘E.ON Vind Sverige’ of Sweden) by way of purchase of shares.

2.

The business activities of the undertakings concerned are:

The E.ON group's activities cover all levels of the supply chain in the fields of electricity and gas and also extend to related sectors,

SEAS-NVE A.m.b.a. is a Danish consumer-owned energy company, whose core business is the delivery of energy and communication services to customers in Denmark,

for E.ON Vind Sverige: production and sale of electricity from wind farms as well as related activities, owning the offshore wind farm RS2 located south of the Danish island of Lolland.
