Sarajevo, ASA PVA d.o.o. Sarajevo, ASA PSS d.o.o., Skoda Center d.o.o. Bihac.
Council of Competition, after assessment and analysis of data and facts established in the proceedings, found that the implementation of the concentration does not lead to a horizontal overlapping of the parties to the concentration, and that the market shares of economic entities ASA Holding, ASA Auto d.o.o., ASA PVA d.o.o., ASA PSS d.o.o. and Skoda Center d.o.o. remain unchanged, i.e. will not produce a change in market positions in the relevant market, and that this concentration does not prevent, restrict or distort market competition in the relevant market.
