SAD odobrio Nokiji preuzimanje tvrtke Alcatel Lucent

Američko ministarstvo pravosuđa odobrilo je Nokiji i tvrtki Alcatel-Lucent nastavak spajanja ukinuvši period provjere koji se standardno izdaje prilikom ovakvih tržišnih transakcija. Proces provjere  je Nokia već zgotovila u Brazilu i Srbiji, a očekuje se dobivanje zelenog svjetla za finaliziranje preuzimanja i u ostalim državama gdje Nokia i Alcatel-Lucent posluju.

Konačnu odluku još moraju donijeti dioničari Nokije i potvrditi preuzimanje više od 50% udjela u tvrtki Alcatel-Lucent. Cijeli posao bi trebao biti zaključen u prvoj polovici 2016. godine.

S obzirom na približavanje kraju ovog povećeg preuzimanja ili bolje rečeno spajanja, nije ni čudno da Nokia pokušava privesti kraju i prodaju HERE odjela. Međutim, gledajući posljednje promo video filmove, Nokia je poprilično dala do znanja da je HERE i dalje bitan dio njenog poslovanja pa je vjerojatnost da odjel tu ostane i dalje.

Helsinki, June 17 2015 –  Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent today announced that the United States Department of Justice has granted early termination of the U.S. antitrust waiting period for the combination of Nokia and Alcatel-Lucent, permitting the transaction to proceed. Early termination of the U.S. antitrust waiting period takes us one important step closer to the closing of the pending transaction.

The parties continue to make good progress with the regulatory approval processes in the remaining relevant jurisdictions, with the parties having already obtained antitrust clearances in Brazil and Serbia. Both companies will continue to cooperate with the remaining authorities to close their reviews as quickly as possible.

The transaction remains subject to approval by Nokia shareholders, Nokia holding over 50.00% of the share capital of Alcatel-Lucent on a fully diluted basis upon completion of the public exchange offer, receipt of other regulatory approvals and other customary conditions. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2016.
