United States District Court for the District of Columbia United States of America, U.S. Department of Justice, Antitrust Division, 450 Fifth Street NW, Suite 8700, Washington, DC 20530, Plaintiff, v. ZF Friedrichshafen A.G., Lowentaler Strasse 20, 88046 Friedrichshafen, Germany, and WABCO Holdings, Inc., 1220 Pacific Drive, Auburn Hills, MI 48326, Defendants. Civil Action No.: 1:20–cv–00182 Judge: Hon. Ketanji B. Jackson Complaint The United States of America (‘‘United States’’), acting under the direction of the Attorney General of the United States, brings this civil antitrust action against Defendants ZF Friedrichshafen AG (‘‘ZF’’) and WABCO Holdings, Inc. (‘‘WABCO’’) to enjoin the proposed merger of ZF and WABCO. The United States complains and alleges as follows: I. Nature of the Action 1. Pursuant to an agreement and plan of merger dated March 28, 2019, ZF and WABCO propose to merge in a transaction that would unite two of the leading global suppliers of components used in the manufacture of large commercial vehicles (‘‘LCVs’’), which include commercial trucks and buses. 2. ZF and WABCO are the only suppliers of steering gears for use in LCVs in North America. Steering gears PO 00000 Frm 00097 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5707 are an essential part of the steering systems used to direct the front wheels of LCVs. They are also a key component of advanced driver-assisted steering systems that provide safer, more efficient vehicle operation, and could ultimately be developed to enable autonomous operation of LCVs. The proposed merger would eliminate competition between ZF and WABCO and likely create a monopoly for LCV steering gears in North America. 3. As a result, the proposed transaction likely would substantially lessen competition in the market for the design, manufacture, and sale of LCV steering gears in North America in violation of Section 7 of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. 18. II. The Defendants and the Transaction 4. ZF is a German company headquartered in Friedrichshafen, Germany. It has 149,000 employees in 40 countries, and had annual sales of $36.9 billion in 2018, $9.6 billion of which were in the United States. ZF’s North American business historically focused on the production and sale of transmissions to passenger and light vehicle manufacturers, but in 2015, ZF acquired a leading U.S. steering systems manufacturer, TRW, Inc. ZF’s U.S. headquarters are in Livonia, Michigan. 5. WABCO is a Delaware corporation with a North American headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan, and a global headquarters in Bern, Switzerland. WABCO descends from the original Westinghouse Air Brake Company formed in 1869. It has 16,000 employees in 40 countries, and had annual sales in 2018 of $3.8 billion, $850 million of which were in the United States. WABCO’s North American business historically focused on commercial vehicle air brake and air suspension components, but in 2017, WABCO acquired a leading U.S. commercial vehicle steering component company, R.H. Sheppard Co., Inc. 6. On March 28, 2019, pursuant to an agreement and plan of merger, ZF agreed to acquire WABCO in a deal valued at approximately $7 billion. III. Jurisdiction and Venue 7. The United States brings this action under Section 15 of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. 25, as amended, to prevent and restrain Defendants from violating Section 7 of the Clayton Act, 15 U.S.C. 18. 8. Defendants design, manufacture, and sell LCV steering gears in the United States that are used on LCVs in service throughout the United States. Defendants’ activities in the design, manufacture, and sale of these products E:\FR\FM\31JAN1.SGM 31JAN1
