OFT closed case: Completed acquisition by Burlington Slate Limited of certain assets of Kirkstone Quarries Limited.
Affected market: Quarrying of slate
Found not to qualify.
On the basis of the information available to it, the Office of Fair Trading has decided that the completed acquisition by Burlington Slate Limited of certain assets of Kirkstone Quarries 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.
