The European Commission has approved, under the EU Merger Regulation, the acquisition of sole control over Netinera Deutschland GmbH (‘Netinera’) of Germany by Trenitalia S.p.A (‘Trenitalia’) of
Italy. Netinera operates regional rail and bus passenger services mainly in Germany and, to a lesser extent, in the Czech Republic, on the basis of public service contracts awarded mainly by the
German Public Transport Authorities (PTAs). Netinera is currently jointly controlled by Trenitalia and Cube Transport Sarl, an investment fund incorporated in Luxembourg specialised in
infrastructure and public services. Trenitalia is active in local, long distance and international rail passenger transport and related services in Italy and other European countries, mainly
France, Greece and UK. It is wholly owned by Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane S.p.A. which is itself 100% owned by the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance. The Commission concluded that the
proposed acquisition would raise no competition concerns, because of its limited impact on the market. 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
