BRUSSELS, April 12 European Union regulators on
Wednesday cleared U.S. car supplier Lear's takeover of
the seats and metals business of Spain's Grupo Antolín-Irausa,
saying it would still face sufficient competition.
"The Commission concluded that the proposed acquisition
would not raise competition concerns given the parties' moderate
combined market positions," the European Commission, which acts
as the bloc's competition supervisor, said in a statement.
The deal includes 12 factories and two research and
development centres in Europe and northern Africa.
