EU clears General Electric's US$1.6b takeover of LM Windpower

Business | 21 Mar 2017 12:40PM

The European Union has cleared General Electric's planned US$1.65 billion acquisition of LM Wind Power, a Denmark-based manufacturer of rotor blades for wind turbines. 

The EU's executive Commission said the takeover was approved unconditionally because the combined company "would continue to face effective competition in Europe.'' 

It said that GE has a relatively small market share in onshore and offshore wind turbines and that LM, although it has a significant market share, has seen its market position decline over recent years. 

The planned acquisition was announced in October.-AP
