Bulgaria Anti-trust Body Says Cannot Consider CEZ Assets Sale due to Legal Proceedings
Bulgaria's anti-monopoly regulator said on Thursday it would not consider a new bid by Bulgarian company Inercom to win approval for its deal to acquire the Bulgarian assets of Czech power utility CEZ due to ongoing court procedures, reports Euronews.
The Commission for Protection of Competition blocked the deal in July and Inercom filed an appeal against it in a Bulgarian court.
Last month Inercom divested its solar energy business to clear regulatory objections to the deal, estimated at 320 million euros and sought new approval.
On Thursday, the regulator said it cannot look into their new request while there is an open court case.
