At the end of its investigation, the Autorité noted that the transaction was not likely to raise competition concerns in the upstream market for the supply of computer components, given the competition from computer manufacturers and the important power of negotiation of computer component manufacturers or wholesalers active in this market.

The Autorité has thus noted that the transaction does not have the effect of significantly strengthening the position of the new entity on all of these markets, in particular due to the presence of numerous other competitors and the parties' limited positions in affected markets.

The Autorité therefore cleared this transaction without subjecting it to specific conditions.
