OLG Düsseldorf prohibits merger of Remondis with DSD

23 04 20

The Oberlandesgericht Düsseldorf dismissed Remondis' protest against the prohibition of the merger with Duales System Deutschland (DSD) by the Bundeskartellamt. The court confirmed the Bundeskartellamt's decision according to which the merger would have created a dominant position in the marketing of glass cullet and Remondis would have exploited its market power created by the acquisition.

Under the leadership of DICE Consult Partner Prof. Dr. Justus Haucap, DICE Consult has supported the Bundesverband Sekundärstoffe und Entsorgung (BVSE) in the proceedings against the merger project with its expertise in competition economics.
