Bertelsmann AG recently announced its intent to sell BertelsmannSpringer, a publisher of scientific, technical, and medical (STM) journals, to Cinven and Candover, a partnership of UK-based private equity firms.

We urge the European Commission, as we have urged the U.S. Department of Justice, to challenge the proposed sale.
