The European Commission has approved, under the EU Merger Regulation, the acquisition of GETRAG FORD Transmissions (‘GFT’) of Germany by the Ford Group (‘Ford’) of the U.S. GFT manufactures and
sells manual transmissions primarily for Ford-branded light vehicles. Before thetransaction, GFT was jointly controlled by Ford and Magna International Inc. of Canada. Ford is primarily active in
the manufacture and sale of a full line of passenger and commercial vehicles. The Commission concluded that the proposed acquisition would raise no competition concerns, because Ford already had
joint control of GFT and the change to sole control would have no significant impact on the existing competition. 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
