Brocade Communications Systems Inc / McDATA Corporation
OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by Brocade Communications Systems Inc of McDATA Corporation
Affected market: Enterprise data storage system components
On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the completed acquisition of McDATA Corporation by Brocade Communications Systems Inc 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.
