On 25 May 2020, 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:

EQT acquires, within the meaning of Article 3(1)(b) of the Merger Regulation, sole control of the whole of Schülke.

The concentration is accomplished by way of purchase of shares.

The business activities of the undertakings concerned are:

EQT. EQT is an investment fund that seeks to make investments primarily in Europe, with a focus on Northern Europe.

Schülke. Schülke is active in infection prevention and hygiene. Schülke develops, produces and distributes antiseptics for wound care, disinfectants, medical and cosmetic skin care products and preservatives.
