German's ZF gets EU clearance to buy Cherry


BRUSSELS, Oct 31 (Reuters) - German automotive components company ZF Friedrichshafen AG received permission from EU competition authorities on Friday to buy Cherry Corp, a U.S. maker of electronic components for the automotive industry. The EU executive said in a statement that ZF and Cherry "are only marginally active in the same markets" and concluded that that "the merged entity would not be able to affect competition on the market".
