On 27 February 2015, the Commission received a notification of a proposed concentration pursuant to Article 4 of Council Regulation (EC) No 139/2004 (1) by which the undertakings TeliaSonera AB (‘TeliaSonera’, Sweden) and Telenor Danmark Holding A/S (Denmark), controlled by Telenor ASA (‘Telenor’, Norway) acquire within the meaning of Article 3(1)(b) of the Merger Regulation joint control of the whole of a newly-created joint venture (the ‘JV’, Denmark) by way of contribution to the JV of their respective business activities in Denmark.
