This notification concerns the following undertakings:

Norges Bank Investment Management (‘NBIM’, Norway),

NBIM and PSPIB will acquire within the meaning of Article 3(1)(b) and 3(4) of the Merger Regulation joint control of CPC Partnership and NewCo.

The concentration is accomplished by way of purchase of shares.
