In Case T‑400/14,

Premo, SL, established in Malaga (Spain), represented initially by E. Cornu, F. De Visscher and E. De Gryse, and subsequently by J.-P. García Bailén, lawyers,

applicant,

defendant,

the other party to the proceedings before the Board of Appeal of OHIM being

Prema Semiconductor GmbH, established in Mainz (Germany),

ACTION brought against the decision of the Fifth Board of Appeal of OHIM of 1 April 2014 (Case R 1000/2013-5), relating to opposition proceedings between Prema Semiconductor GmbH and Premo, SL.

1        By letter lodged at the Court Registry on 4 December 2015, the applicant informed the Court, in accordance with Article 125 of the Rules of Procedure of the General Court, that it wished to discontinue proceedings. It sought no order as to costs.

2        By letter lodged at the Court Registry on 5 January 2016, the defendant informed the Court that it had no objection to the removal of the case from the register and requested that the applicant be ordered to bear the costs.

3        Article 136(1) of the Rules of Procedure provides that a party who discontinues or withdraws from proceedings is to be ordered to pay the costs if they have been applied for in the other party’s observations on the discontinuance.

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

On those grounds,

THE PRESIDENT OF THE FOURTH CHAMBER OF THE GENERAL COURT

hereby orders:

1)      Case T-400/14 is removed from the register of the General Court.
