Brussels, 11 January 2016
The European Commission has approved under the EU Merger Regulation the acquisition of MRH (GB) Limited of the United Kingdom by the Lone Star Group of the US.
Lone Star is a group of private equity funds that invests in real estate, equity, credit and other financial assets. MRH owns and operates retail motor fuel service stations in the UK and the Channel Islands. The companies' activities do not overlap. The Commission therefore concluded that the proposed acquisition would raise no competition concerns.
The transaction was examined under the simplified merger review procedure. More information is available on the Commission's competition website, in the public case register under the case number M.7793.
