    EU opens $22 billion Vodafone, Liberty Global deal inquiry

    Vodafone's (VOD.L) purchase of Liberty Global's (LBTYA.O) assets in Germany and east Europe may damage competition in Germany and the Czech Republic, EU antitrust regulators said on Tuesday, as they opened a full-scale probe into the $21.8 billion (£17.13 billion) deal. The deal between the world's second-largest mobile operator and U.S. cable pioneer John Malone's Liberty would enable Vodafone to compete more effectively with Deutsche Telekom (DTEGn.DE) in the German rival's home market.

    Exclusive: Vodafone, Liberty Global deal faces full EU antitrust scrutiny - source

    Vodafone's (VOD.L) $21.8 billion proposed acquisition of Liberty Global's (LBTYA.O) assets in Germany and eastern Europe is likely to face a full EU antitrust investigation, a person familiar with the matter said. The European Commission's move could ratchet up pressure on the world's second-largest mobile operator to offer concessions, unless it can convince the EU competition enforcer that the deal poses no competition issues. Investors and industry players, however, will be hoping for a flexible regulatory stance given that the Commission has just given unconditional clearance for Deutsche Telekom's (DTEGn.DE) acquisition of Tele2's (TEL2b.ST) Dutch business after initial concerns.
