Tokai Carbon Co Limited - proposed acquisition of ERFTCARBON GmbH

Summary

Tokai Carbon Co Limited proposes to acquire ERFTCARBON GmbH.

Market definition

The activities of the parties only overlap in relation to the production and sale of graphite electrodes overseas. There appears to be no relevant market in Australia affected by this transaction.

Competition analysis

Given that the target does not make any sales to Australia and does not have a presence in Australia there appears to be no possibility of substantially lessening competition in any relevant market.
