(Removal from the register)

In Case T-573/12,

Matrix Energetics International, Inc, established in Lynnwood (United States), represented by R. Böhm, lawyer,

applicant,

v

Office for Harmonisation in the Internal Market (Trade Marks and Designs), represented by I. Harrington, acting as Agent,

defendant,

Action brought against the decision of the Fourth Board of Appeal of OHIM of 25 October 2012 (R 56/2012-4) relating to International Registration designating the European Union.

1        By letter lodged at the Registry of the General Court on 27 May 2015, the applicant informed the Court, in accordance with Article 99 of the Rules of Procedure, that it wished to discontinue proceedings. It sought no order as to costs.

2        By letter lodged at the Registry of the Court on 3 June 2015, the defendant informed the Court that it had no objection to the discontinuance of the proceedings and requested that the applicant should be ordered to bear the costs.

3        According to the first subparagraph of Article 87(5) of the Rules of Procedure, a party who discontinues is to be ordered to pay the costs if they have been applied for in the observations of the other party on the discontinuance.

4        The case should therefore be removed from the register and the applicant ordered to bear its own costs and those of the defendant.

On those grounds,

THE PRESIDENT OF THE SIXTH CHAMBER OF THE GENERAL COURT

hereby orders:

1.      Case T-573/12 is removed from the register of the General Court.

2.      The applicant shall bear its own costs and those incurred by the defendant.
