Affected market: Dry cleaning and laundry products
On the basis of the information available to it, the OFT has decided
that the acquisition of Alex Reid Ltd by Johnson plc does not qualify
for investigation under the mergers provisions of the Enterprise Act
2002, because neither the UK turnover test nor the share of supply test
in section 23 of the Act is met. A relevant merger situation has,
therefore, not been created.
