BRUSSELS Aug 4 European Union antitrust
regulators are set to approve Cemex's bid to acquire
Swiss peer Holcim's Spanish units without requiring
concessions from the Mexican cement producer, a person familiar
with the matter said on Monday.
Cemex has convinced the European Commission that the deal
will not reduce competition in Spain, said the source, who
declined to be named because the decision is not yet public.
The Commission voiced its objections to the deal last month,
another source told Reuters last month, ramping up pressure on
Cemex to offer concessions to allay its concerns.
