Competition Council clears the acquisition of SIA Rīgas tilti by CleanR Grupa’s subsidiary Vizii Urban

12 Dec 2023

Vizii Urban, a CleanR Grupa subsidiary specializing in urban services, has received permission from the Competition Council of the Republic of Latvia to acquire a majority stake in SIA Rīgas tilti.

 Vizii Urban’s goal is to expand its operations and add certain specialized urban services to its portfolio.  That will allow the company to expand its area of operation and raise quality standards.

Therefore, the company decided to acquire Rīgas tilti. The deal had to be reviewed by the Competition Council, which cleared the acquisition on 7 December this year.

In its decision, the Competition Council concluded that Vizii Urban and Rīgas tilti have separate areas of competence and specialization—Vizi Urban offers daily maintenance services of urban territories, streets, roads, and urban spaces all around Latvia, whereas Rīgas tilti specializes in the construction and maintenance (road works) of bridges, overpasses, and other road infrastructure, as well as in the clean-up of specialized road infrastructure.  Thus, the areas of operation of both companies do not overlap.

Following the Competition Council’s decision, both companies continue negotiating the conclusion of the deal.
