Summary of Decision 

The Chamber of the Hellenic Competition Commission unanimously cleared, pursuant to Article 8(3) of the Greek Competition Act 3959/2011, the concentration concerning the acquisition of NRG TRADING HOUSE S.A. by MOTOR OIL (HELLAS) S.A., through the acquisition of 90% of its shares, granting the latter sole control over the former.
