The European Commission announced on 25 March that it has launched an in-depth investigation into Novelis’ US$2.58 billion purchase of Aleris. The deal to buy Aleris was announced in July 2018 and a preliminary market investigation by the European Commission ensued. The initial probe raised significant enough concerns over reduced customer choice to warrant a more detailed investigation into the proposed merger. The outcome from the investigation will have an important impact not only on Novelis’ automotive sector growth strategy, but also on any further consolidation in the aluminium rolling industry.
