EU suspends Bonnier/Schibsted/Retriever deal probe

BRUSSELS, Feb 16 (Reuters) - The European Commission on Monday suspended its in-depth probe of a bid by media groups Bonnier of Sweden and Norway’s Schibsted SBST.OL to take over media monitoring services firm Retriever Sverige AB.

The Commission, which polices competition in the 27-nation European Union, announced the decision in a daily merger list it publishes, but did not give further details.

A Commission official said the companies had missed a deadline for submitting additional information on the proposed deal. (Reporting by Bate Felix)
