The acquisition of Heliox by a Siemens subsidiary has been cleared by the U.K.'s Competition and Market Authority.
The regulator said on Friday that the planned merger between a subsidiary of the German industrial company--Siemens International Holding--and the Netherlands-based electric-vehicle charging specialist doesn't qualify for investigation.
The watchdog had opened an investigation in late October to determine whether the deal would result in a substantial lessening of competition. Both groups operate in the e-mobility charging landscape.
Siemens said in August that it would buy Heliox from Waterland, without disclosing financial details.
