United States competition authority files complaint to block Wilhelmsen acquisition
Today, the United States' Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has announced that they will file a complaint opposing the Wilhelmsen group's planned acquisition. This is standard procedure in cases where the FTC considers that a proposed transaction will substantially lessen competition.
Wilhelmsen disagrees with the FTC's evaluation and will continue to work towards a positive outcome.
A ruling is expected later this year.
