(Case M.9027 — Fosun International/FFT)

Candidate case for simplified procedure

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2018/C 278/04)

1.   

On 1 August 2018, 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:

Fosun International Limited (Hong Kong) (‘Fosun’),

FFT GmbH & Co. KGaA (Germany), FFT Gesellschaft mbH (Austria), and their wholly and majority-owned subsidiaries (together, ‘FFT’)

Fosun acquires within the meaning of Article 3(1)(b) of the Merger Regulation control of the whole of FFT.

The concentration is accomplished by way of purchase of shares.

2.   

The business activities of the undertakings concerned are:

—   for Fosun: Pharmaceutical, Medical Services and Health Management and Health Products, Tourism and Leisure, Fashion and Consumer and Lifestyle, Insurance and Finance and Investment,

—   for FFT: supply of automated and flexible production systems for the automotive industry as well as for non-automotive sectors.

3.   

On preliminary examination, the Commission finds that the notified transaction could fall within the scope of the Merger Regulation. However, the final decision on this point is reserved.

Pursuant to the Commission Notice on a simplified procedure for treatment of certain concentrations under the Council Regulation (EC) No 139/2004 (2) it should be noted that this case is a candidate for treatment under the procedure set out in the Notice.
