On 3 May 2011, the Dutch competition authority (NMa) unconditionally cleared the acquisition of Oxxio by Eneco.  Eneco and Oxxio are supplier of electricity and gas on the Dutch market.  Prior to the acquisition, Oxxio was a subsidiary of Centrica. RBB was instructed by Houthoff Buruma, counsel to Eneco.  The decision of the NMa can be found here.
