Prior notification of a concentration

(Case M.9511 — Macquarie Group/Ocean Breeze Energy and Perikles)

Candidate case for simplified procedure

(Text with EEA relevance)

(2019/C 304/05)

1.   

On 30 August 2019, 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:

Sage Holdings S.à.r.l (Luxembourg), ultimately controlled by Macquarie Group Limited (‘Macquarie’, Australia),

Ocean Breeze Energy GmbH & Co. KG and Perikles 20092 Vermögensverwaltung GmbH (jointly referred to as the ‘Target’, Germany).

Macquarie acquires within the meaning of Article 3(1)(b) of the Merger Regulation sole control of the whole of the Target.

The concentration is accomplished by way of purchase of shares.

2.   

The business activities of the undertakings concerned are:

—   for Macquarie: global provider of banking, financial, advisory, investment and fund management services,

—   for the Target: owns and operates (i) the offshore wind farm Bard Offshore 1 consisting of 80 wind turbine generators, its transformer station and the inner-array cabling, (ii) the jack-up barge Wind Lift I and (iii) the onshore wind farm Rysumer Nacken, consisting of two wind turbine generators.

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.

4.
