EU approves Vodafone's acquisition of Spain's Ono

1 Min Read

BRUSSELS, July 2 (Reuters) - The European Commission said on Wednesday it had approved Vodafone's 7.2-billion-euro ($9.79 billion) acquisition of Spain's largest cable operator Ono without conditions.

"The Commission concluded that the transaction would not raise competition concerns, as the parties' activities are largely complementary: Ono's main activity is related to fixed telecoms, whereas Vodafone is mainly active in mobile telecoms," the Commission, the European Union's antitrust watchdog, said in a statement.
