1.   

On 15 June 2022, the Commission received notification of a proposed concentration pursuant to Article 4 of Council Regulation (EC) No 139/2004 (1).

This notification concerns the following undertakings:

PORR Equipment Services GmbH (‘PORR’, Austria), belonging to the PORR Group,

Umdasch Group Ventures GmbH (‘Umdasch’, Austria), belonging to the Umdasch Group,

SEQUELLO GmbH (‘SEQUELLO’ or the joint venture, Austria), currently jointly controlled by PORR and Umdasch.

Wacker Neuson, PORR and Umdasch will acquire within the meaning of Article 3(1)(b) and 3(4) of the Merger Regulation joint control of SEQUELLO.

The concentration is accomplished by way of purchase of shares.

2.   

The business activities of the undertakings concerned are:

for PORR: the PORR Group carries out activities in the construction industry and covers all areas of that industry from project development, through building construction, civil engineering and road construction, to energy and environmental engineering,

for Umdasch: the development and implementation of innovative solutions along the entire value chain of buildings (construction) and of consumer sales processes (retail). Via its subsidiary Doka, the Umdasch Group also provides and manufactures formwork and scaffolding,

for SEQUELLO: a joint venture which will provide a construction logistics platform that aims to digitise and optimise the ordering, delivery and financial reporting process in the construction industry.
