Nippon Sheet Glass acquisition of Pilkington cleared by EU

The European Commission said it has cleared the proposed acquisition by Japan's Nippon Sheet Glass Co (NSG) of UK peer Pilkington.

The commission said the transaction would not significantly impede effective competition in the European Economic Area (EEA).

NSG is predominantly active in Japan and Asia, while Pilkington is predominantly active in Europe and the US, it said.
