British Sky Broadcasting / The Cloud Networks Ltd

OFT closed case: Anticipated acquisition by British Sky Broadcasting Group plc of The Cloud Networks Limited

Affected market: Wireless internet connectivity

No. ME/4862/11

Found not to qualify.

On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the anticipated acquisition by British Sky Broadcasting Limited of The Cloud Networks Limited does not qualify for investigation under the mergers provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002 (the Act), 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.
