EC approves Macquarie-backed fund's proposed KCOM acquisition

The European Commission approved MEIF 6 Fibre Ltd.'s proposed acquisition of U.K. internet-based services and communications provider KCOM Group PLC.

Based on the commission's review, the proposed transaction "would be limited to the horizontal and vertical overlaps between the companies." The EC excluded any competition concerns that may arise from conglomerate relationships between companies.

MEIF 6 Fibre is backed by Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (Europe) Ltd.
